Bring Me the Horizon's Oli Sykes Reflects On Chester Bennington's Influence

(Radio.com) Bring Me the Horizon frontman Oli Sykes discussed the profound influence that late Linkin Park's Chester Bennington had on him in a new interview.

"When I heard the news he had died I was in Los Angeles, not too far away from where it happened. At first I didn't believe it, to be honest," Sykes told Kerrang.

"When it was clear it was real, I felt weird. I know we've lost a lot of great artists over the years, but no-one had the impact and influence on my life that he did. Him as a vocalist and his band are genuinely responsible for the path I chose in life.

"Losing someone that you don't actually know - obviously I met him, but I couldn't call him a friend - is such a strange feeling. I feel like I miss his presence, even though I didn't really know him. I think it's important that you grieve and appreciate what you and we've all lost."

The singer when on to detail how Bennington's vocal style influenced him as a performer. Read about that here.
