I’ve seen and met many rockers over the last thirty-plus years, some were cool, some were tools. Chester Bennington of Linkin Park would definitely fall into the cool category.

Bennington will be honored with the Stevie Ray Vaughn Award for his coolness on May 30, at Club Nokia in Los Angeles for his work with the MusiCares MAP Fund.

The MusiCares MAP Fund is an organization that is committed to working with other addicts in the addiction recovery process. The nationwide organization helps musicians with everything from housing, dentist and doctor visits and assistance with critical illnesses.

Bennington shared his thoughts on being this years recipient: “MusiCares MAP Fund is an amazing program that takes care of their own, and actually saves lives, It’s been so rewarding to support them and see firsthand what they’ve accomplished for so many artists.”

Congratulations Chester, stay cool my brother.

Best of KFMX
