Chester “Chaz” Bennington was born on March 20, 1976, in Phoenix, Arzona. As a teenager Chester was interested in music and was inspired by bands such as Stone Temple Pilots and Depeche Mode. His parents divorced when Bennington was 11 years old and as a result he started to take drugs like LSD and amphetamine. At the beginning of his adult life, Chaz worked at Burger King and wasn’t even thinking about a career as a musician, because of his alcohol and drugs dependence.

The first real investment in Chester Bennington’s future net worth was in 1993, when he started to sing with a band called Sean Dowdell and His Friends. However, Chaz didn’t stay in this band for a long time and in the same year dropped it to sing in a new band called Gray Daze. Grey Daze recorded three albums with Bennington (Demo in 1993, Wake Me in 1994 and the last one – …no sun today in 1997). Actually these tries in two different bands weren’t as successful as the singer could have hoped. Charles Bennington’s net worth was still low, and he even started to think abut quitting music, but soon life finally gave Chaz an opportunity to show himself. The vice-president of A&R at Zomba Music Jeff Blue offered Chester and other future members of the new band an audition. Finding the deal that would be suitable to all members and Jeff Blue was much harder than he expected, but finally in 2000 Linkin Park released their first album called “Hybrid Theory”, which turned out to be a great commercial success for Chester, but that’s was not all. Bennington and the other Linkin Park members have noted that their popularity and net worth grew along with their next albums.

Later, in 2005, Chaz started to work with the band Dead by Sunrise and at the same time he was writing songs for Linkin Park, but the debut album of the band wasn’t released until 2009.

Nowadays Chester Bennington lives in United States with his wife Talinda Ann Bentley, a former Playboy model, and their three children: twins Lily and Lila and Tyler Lee Bennington. He is a big tattoo enthusiast and a fan of the band called “Phoenix Suns”. Chester Charles Bennington’s net worth today continues rising and it looks like his career as a musician isn’t going to end soon.
