Chester Charles Bennington (March 20, 1976 ? July 20, 2017) was an American singer and songwriter best known as the frontman for the rock band Linkin Park. He was also the lead singer for Dead by Sunrise and fronted Stone Temple Pilots from 2013 to 2015. On July 20, 2017, Bennington was found dead in his home in Palos Verdes Estates, California from apparent suicide by hanging.
In an interview, Bennington revealed that he had suffered sexual abuse from an older male friend when he was seven years old. He was afraid to ask for help because he did not want people to think he was gay or lying, and the abuse continued until the age of 13. The abuse and situation at home affected him so much that he felt the urge to kill people and run away. To comfort himself, he drew pictures and wrote poetry and songs. He later revealed the abuser's identity to his father, but chose not to continue the case after he realized the abuser was a victim himself.
At the age of 17, Bennington moved in with his mother, and was banned from leaving the house when his mother discovered his drug activity. He worked at a Burger King before starting his career as a professional musician. He was physically bullied in high school. In an interview, he said, "I was knocked around like a rag doll at school, for being skinny and looking different." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chester_Bennington

der radikale Selbstversuch des Autors, sich in verschiedene Tiere seines Landes hineinzuversetzen (Dachs, Fuchs, Rotwild, Mauersegler) ist nicht NUR Verhaltensforschung bei Tieren, sondern führt ihn auch zur Psychologie und zur Frage: Was ist ein Mensch ?
Hörbuch deswegen, weil ich dann leichter zwischen einzelnen "Portionen" vor- und zurück "blättern" kann....
