Los Angeles: Chester Bennington (41), the lead singer of rock band Linkin Park, was found dead on Thursday at his southern California home in an apparent suicide, sources said.

Coroner’s office spokesman Brian Elias said his office had been notified by law enforcement of the death of Bennington on Thursday morning. Elias said the death was being handled as an apparent suicide.

Bennington had a history of alcohol and drug abuse. He had spoken openly in the past about his struggles to overcome his demons when Linkin Park first found success in 2000 with the album “Hybrid Theory.” But in 2011 he said he had been sober for six years.

Bennington’s death came a week before the band was due to kick off the U.S. leg of its tour on July 27 in Mansfield, Massachusetts.

Bennington, who was twice married and had six children, was a close friend of Soundgarden front man Chris Cornell, who committed suicide in Detroit in May.
