Chester Bennington's colleagues are still reeling from the Linkin Park singer's suicide on July 20.

In an interview with 95.5 KLOS on Sunday, Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich had nothing but fond things to say about his late pal.

The musician said:

"Chester was a very kind and very unassuming and very gentle soul, who had a really big heart."

"The first time I heard Linkin Park — the power that came out of him was just unbelievable. It was so original and so unique. He was one of those singers that has that rare gift where every word that comes out of him sounds authentic."

The 53-year-old went on to remember the 2003 Summer Sanitarium tour featuring both Metallica and Linkin Park:

"All those guys are great guys and my heart goes out to all of 'em and to the family. I think more than anything, I think it reaffirms — without sounding too cheesy — that we've gotta live each moment to the max and just be in the moment."
