Elton John paid tribute to Chester Bennington and Chris Cornell on his Beats 1 radio show. “It has been a sad few weeks. We lost Chris and then we lost Chester. I met them both briefly and they were two lovely guys. You know, artists are prone to being a little destructive, whether you are an actor or singer or visual artist. Sometimes, as Jim Carrey said when Philip Seymour Hoffman committed suicide, ‘The noise just gets too much.’”
