I saw Soundgarden during the 2nd Lollapalooza run and Audioslave during their 3rd album tour. Cornell wasn't 100% during that Audioslave show but he was still pretty fucking amazing and I consider him to have been among the very best hard rock singers of the past 25-30 years. He had an instantly recognizable, really powerful voice. "You Know My Name" from the "Casino Royale" opening credits is my favorite Bond theme. Unlike a lot of artists these days, he was always putting out a record or touring on his own or with whatever band he was in at any given time. Just a really prolific guy. Of all the so-called grunge icons, he was the person I figured would be around until old age, even outliving Eddie Vedder.

Great voice. Such a reminder that depression can impact anyone. He was on tour. No shitty YouTube clips went viral. No OD's. Guy kept cranking shit out and performing live. Maybe I'm naive but I'd never expect this from a dude with such a continuous output that looked so healthy. Sad for his family.

I decided to listen to some Soundgarden today. I put on my favorite album: Down on the Upside.

1st song: Pretty Noose. :nyrexall:

I am reading reports that are citing that CC had a prescription for Ativan. Benzos are not usually prescribed for admitted junkies or alcoholics except in the immediate stages of weaning off of intense cocaine use (or other uppers) or alc withdrawals. One of the reports quotes his wife as saying that in a conversation with CC, he mentioned that he may have taken one or two more Ativans than normal and his speech was slurred. Who knows if any of this is true, but I know of no physicians that would prescribe this med or type of med to a junkie or alky. Mine certainly wouldn't....ever.

Just read that too. I am so incredible touched by this. Cried a lot today.

So that would make sense to me as i still can't believe that he did that intentionally. Leave his kids and wife alone. No.
And then hanging himself - what a horrible way of taking your life....well if you are psychotic or something like that...maybe...

Well my hubby gets meds against depression too and one doctor told me that those meds can lead to psychosis ...other doctor said no. What can i believe? It is always a hard situation which can change from day to day.
Still its a pretty fucked up illness. The meds also make you tired all the time. I am happy my hubby is seeing his doctor/psychiatric at least once in two weeks until he gets therapy sessions which may take some time to begin as such sessions are not easy to get. :sad:

This reminds me when the frontman for Big Country, Stuart Adamson committed suicide in much the same way. He had a wife and kids, had just finished a farewell tour with Big Country and just disappeared one day without explanation. His manager and bandmates were posting on the official website that he was missing and a week later, he was found in a hotel room in Hawaii dead from hanging himself. I don't think he left a note but in hindsight, there were signs he was suffering from long term depression.

I fear that CC will become another surface level rallying point for right wing fear factory fucks for further defunding mental health rhetoric issues as a non issue ....drop dead gorgeous rock star, healthy, active, rich, famous, beautiful wife, beautiful family, talented....etc....irredeemable....dead.... :blah: :blah: :blah: :blah: Hope I'm wrong, but I put nothing past these cretins.

Fuck. Just two hours after finishing the show. Some people might've still be in their cars on the way home, buzzing about the concert, and Chris was already dead in a hotel bathroom.

What a world we live in, people.

Less. He was onstage at 11:30 finishing the show and pronounced dead at 1:30. Apparently the doors were being broken down around 1 am. Hotel security delayed the entry (they had the key, but the chain latch was secured) because of privacy issues which the bodyguard/friend then ignored. Just minutes away. I dunno....it just makes it seem that much more tragic to me. :noclue:
