Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich is the most recent musician to pay tribute to the late Linkin Park vocalist, Chester Bennington.

The singer committed suicide a few weeks ago (July 20) and since tributes from the music world have been pouring in over this tremendous loss.

In an interview with LA radio station 95.5 KLOS, Lars Ulrich shared some kind words about Bennington and his music.”Chester was a very kind and very unassuming and very gentle soul, who had a really big heart”, Ulrich began.


“The first time I heard Linkin Park – the power that came out of him was just unbelievable. It was so original and so unique. He was one of those singers that has that rare gift where every word that comes out of him sounds authentic.”
