Fred Durst Pens Letter To 'Courageous' Late Friend Chester Bennington

Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst penned an emotional letter remembering his late friend Chester Bennington after the Linkin Park singer's death.

"I can say so many wonderful things about the Chester I knew. He had a way of making anyone he spoke to feel heard, understood and significant," Durst writes.

"His aura and spirit were contagious and empowering. Often those types of people have so much pain and torture inside that the last thing they want is to contaminate or break the spirit of others."

"He would go out of his way to make sure you knew he truly cares. As real and transparent as our conversations would be, he was always the one projecting light on the shadows."

"In my last conversation with him, he was holding his two cute puppies and giving me the most selfless and motivational compliments in regards to Limp Bizkit and myself and thanking me for paving the path for bands like Linkin Park."

Durst concluded his letter by remembering the last time he had spoken with Bennington.

"I told him if it weren't for him and his voice and his words, this genre would never have reached the masses and affected so many lives. I thanked him for being so courageous and humble and for always being such a gentleman. We laughed and hugged and told jokes as if there would always be a tomorrow for us to meet again."

"I want to hug him now and let him know that we all experience our own pain and deal with it our own ways. I know his torture is unique to him, but I would always be here to listen and help in any way I can. But I won't get that hug and that moment now, which makes me so sad."

Chester Bennington's death was ruled suicide by hanging.
