LINKIN PARK frontman Chester Bennington has paid tribute to SOUNDGARDEN singer Chris Cornell in a heartfelt open letter. Cornell performed a concert with SOUNDGARDEN at the Fox Theatre in Detroit on Wednesday night (May 17) and was found dead in his hotel room at midnight. His death has since been ruled a suicide. In a post on Instagram, Bennington wrote: "I dreamt about THE BEATLES last night. I woke up with [BEATLES song] 'Rocky Raccoon' playing in my head and a concerned look on my wife's face. She told me my friend has just passed away. Thoughts of you flooded my mind and I wept. I'm still weeping, with sadness, as well as gratitude for having shared some very special moments with you and your beautiful family." Bennington continued: "You have inspired me in many ways you could never have known. Your talent was pure and unrivaled. Your voice was joy and pain, anger and forgiveness, love and heartache all wrapped up into one. I suppose that's what we all are. You helped me understand that. "I just watched a video of you singing 'A Day In The Life' by THE BEATLES and thought of my dream. I'd like to think you were saying goodbye in your own way. "I can't imagine a world without you in it. I pray you find peace in the next life. I send my love to your wife and children, friends and family. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your life."

With all of my love Chris.
