Вот, что рассказывает Chester о себе:
Chester Bennington in his High School Yearbook.

Chester was born March 20 1976 and grew up in Phoenix, Arizona. He is notable for producing loud, high-pitched and often screamed vocals, which were produced in part over time through Chester singing, until his throat and lungs were sore, when he was a child. Chester's first instrument was the piano. While Chester was growing up he was in a number of bands and played various instruments, but mainly was a vocalist. He never settled in a full time band until 1992, when he joined Grey Daze. The band disbanded in 1997 and Chester moved on to Linkin Park.

Chester had a rather unpleasant life right through adolescence. He was sexually abused as a child, by a close family friend. A few of his friends committed suicide, and one of his friends died in a skateboarding accident.

Bennington's parents divorced in 1987, leaving him with his two half sisters and a half brother. Chester was the youngest of four children at 11 years old, and he stayed with his father who was a police officer and detective. His brother introduced him to bands like Loverboy, Foreigner and Rush which he claims as his influences.

Before his parents parted, the family frequently moved around Arizona, from cities such as Scottsdale, Tolleson, Tempe, and others. "I was an athletic kid but I just stopped caring about it, and I stopped doing well in school," Chester states in a Kerrang! article. "I started smoking weed and going to parties. I think I was 11 when I started smoking pot." [1] Chester attended Centennial High School, Greenway High School, and later graduated from Washington High School. Chester said that while he was in high school he was bullied and he described himself as a geek. When Chester was younger he had a day job working as a coffee barista. Chester worked at Bean Tree Coffee House and said it was that what kept him going, and that coffee houses are very understanding and this was the base of his inspiration. Through his late teens and early twenties Chester battled an addiction to crystal meth, LSD, and cocaine; however, he managed to overcome his addictions and is currently clean.


Chester Bennington performing with Grey Daze.

Bennington was formerly the lead vocalist in a band called Grey Daze through 1993 to 1998 who were popular across Arizona and the United States but didn't achieve global status. Chester thought he was not getting enough credit for his writing and had mutual disagreements with other band members, causing him to leave the band. While with Grey Daze, Chester recorded two albums, "Wake Me" in 1994 and "...no sun today" in 1997 along with one demo tape "Sean Dowdell and his Friends" in 1993 while the band was under the same name. After Chester left, they split up and guitarist, Sean Dowdell joined a new band with a new female singer, Jodi Wendt, called Waterface and have recorded one album, "Seven Days".

Chester met his wife, Samantha, while working at Burger King. Chester worked part time so he could practice with Grey Daze in the evening. At this point he was so poor he couldn't afford a car or even a bike so he used a skateboard as his form of transportation. They got married on October 31, 1996, at the age of 20, and because Chester was too poor to afford an actual wedding or engagement ring, the two of them have rings tattooed on their ring fingers. The couple were in the local real estate market and to learn more about the business world, Chester would sneak into classes at Arizona State University without paying the required tuition fees (unlike the rest of Linkin Park, Bennington does not have a college diploma.)[2] They have one child, a boy named Draven Sebastian Bennington, born April 19, 2002 at 1 p.m. as mentioned on linkinpark.com : "Chester and Samantha had their son on April 19th, 2002 at 1PM. He's happy, healthy, and cute as can be. The baby and parents are doing great. They thank you for being so interested and they l
