Chester Bennington Fan Documentary


My name is Matthew and I’m someone who’s life has dramatically changed for the worst after the passing of Chester.

For me, I struggle with my demons everyday., But then I’d listen to LP and the demons would go away or at least just the duration of the song, I felt normal for a couple minutes. Since the age of 10 (17 years when he passed), Chester would be there to tell me I was normal, that things were going to be ok and that when “your armor breaks to put it back together” and move forward. When he lost his battle, I started to loose mine. I thought to myself, “If Chester cant get out of his mind set, how can i?” It didnt make sense. I started to think “Is leaving the best way?” It would just make everything go away. It sounded like paradise. I started seeing a therapist but not much was helping. I realized that talking to others who feel the same way was the best thing. A lot of people dont understand, and I can see how looking in from the outside that this didn’t make any sense to why I feel this way.

Which lead me to want to take on a new journey. I want to create a fan made mini documentary about fans who struggle with the loss of their favorite musician: Chester Bennington. With my experience with video equipment and editing, I know I can put those skills to good use. Why not interview fans who are experiencing the same feelings and put it out for fans around the world to hear the stories. I know I’m not the only one who struggles with this loss and I know that it would bring comfort to those who are still feeling this way. Just listening to others stories and hearing that they are not alone would bring comfort, after all, thats why we listen to music in the first place.

This is a total NO PROFIT, something that I would like to do to help myself get through this tragic loss and hopefully provide some light to those who need it. This is made by fans for fans. Please no hate on this. If you disagree please just ignore.

If you are at all interested in being interviewed or know someone who would like to participate please DM me so we can talk details.

Los Angeles filming locations only.

Thank you all.



I love this idea and I can’t thank you enough for sharing this with us


Thanks so much!


Hello soldier and nice to meet you! :smile: :sun_with_face:
I think it’s hard for most of the fans to think about Chazy now… but… you/we have to change our point of view…life is hard sometimes, but this life deserve to be lived…from the hardest sad moments we can learn how to be strong… :muscle: there’s always a chance and someone who can listen and help you…you’re not alone! :blush:


Thank you :slight_smile: Nice to meet you as well.


Thanks for sharing! Nice to have you here!


Wow, nice idea, I hope there will be many American fans participating!
In what way would you like to present the documentary? Should it be a YouTube video or something else? Even though I’m from Germany, I’d really like to take part, surely it’s important for many people to do this.
I know lots of Germans who think and feel the same way, so my idea would be interviewing those, too (in English of course). Maybe we could as well find some ‘interview partners’ in other countries, so we can show that Chester not only had influence in his home country but also around the whole world.


@onemorelight4 Hope you are feeling a lot better now. I guessed we were just confused. I believe deep down we all know what Chester had been trying to communicate to us all through his songs. Btw, just wanted to share this article written by a fellow LP fan which got me thinking… On life: What the passing of one of my idols taught me about grief, loss and being alive #makeChesterproud


Thank you for sharing what I wrote, I am glad it meant something to you, I guess I was just trying to clarify my own thoughts.
