Chester Bennington's Quotes

  • [on high school] I was a geek who thought I was cool. I didn't hang out with a particular clique, but with different people from different cliques. I was a total nerd, trying to fit in. Luckily, I found music and that was my niche. That sorta took me out of my geekdom. I was never invited to parties as a teenager--I turned up with the popular people. That's where the lyrics to "Guilty By Association" came from.
  • The fans are the biggest reason we do what we do.
  • I always wanted to be a rock star. That was my childhood dream. That's what I told everybody I was going to be when I grew up.
  • It's not cool to be an alcoholic.
  • I don't drink. I choose to be sober now. I have drunk over the last six years, but I just don't want to be that person anymore.
