Source – The “Carpool Karaoke” segment made popular by The Late Late Show with James Corden is being turned into a full-blown series, and Linkin Park are among the guests expected to appear on the upcoming show.
Just last week, the band shared a photo from the set of the show, alongside actor Ken Jeong.

Like many others in the entertainment industry, Jeong was shocked to learn of Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington’s death yesterday (July 20). Earlier today, a coroner confirmed that the cause of death was suicide by hanging.
Usually funny man Jeong took to Twitter in a sombre mood to offer his condolences to the late vocalist.
I am in shock and heartbroken. All my thoughts and prayers go out to Chester and his family and friends at this time.

The more stuff you see about the way Chester carried on with life, the more I think he didn’t want to kill him self. I think people had overwhelming moments and combined with their mental health or struggles with substances sometimes there’s a perfect storm. Something you can’t explain if you dont understand.
Linkin Park was going on tour, He just went away with his wife for a vacation, filmed Carpool Karaoke and was supposed to be at a photo shoot the day he passed. Not the handrails of someone who’s suicidal.
But you can’t put the suicide stereotype in a box and what we see is never how anyone feels.
