It is baffling.
In cc case that was part of the appeal of his music as dealing with such things and it helped many people

The fact that his music helped people with depression boggles my mind. I would never listen to his stiff if I was in a bad mood.

I also find it amazing that the one guy who spoke his mind and was critical catches a bunch of grief. I don't care about Curt Cobaine, Robin Williams, or this guy either because they are dead and as such not worth my time. I doubt any of these folks realized how much pain they were going to cause their friends, family and those they influenced. I feel sorry for those people, mostly because they now suffer and search for answers.

Congratulations guys, 2 topics about the same subject have both gone down the drain  :tup:

I think huntwa needs a good cleansing and get back to its roots.
To hunt and butcher an animal is to recognize that meat is not some abstract form of protein that springs into existence tightly wrapped in cellophane and styrofoam.

One of his interviews he kind of explains as his song writing is how he felt at a certain time and if only one person said I understand what you're feeling because that person is in the same place and the song only made sense to that person then Chris felt as if he was not all that crazy to feel that and  thousands of people felt the same way hearing the lyrics

I hope the official cause of death by suicide is reversed for the sake of his kids, family, and friends.  That would alleviate a great deal of the current and future pain for them.

And I think what you are describing there is what made grunge in general, and Cornell's music in particular so appealing to many. It was real, relatable expression of what many were going through in their own lives.

That said, feelings for his family should have been a prime consideration. Maybe they were; we will perhaps never know. Whether it was accidental overmedication, or what- one thing is sure- it's remarkably sad for fans- can only imagine what his family is going through.

What a terrible loss. I love his music. One of the greatest front men ever. There will never be a voice like his ever again. RIP Chris. Love sent to his family.

 :yeah: Really sucks. Very few singers have the range of voice he had (4 octaves I think) Freddy Mercury was another one with that talent.

First concert I went to was soundgarden/ screaming trees at memorial stadium... I was 15 and would never be the same.

I saw Soundgarden, Screaming Trees and the Melvins in '90 or '91 IIRC. That was a good show. The Melvins rocked.

As someone who is good friends with one of Chris' family members...please remember he was more than an entertainer. He had family and loved ones that are deversated by his passing. I doubt that if a fellow member posted about his/her loved one passing in such a way that we would jump to pass judgement on their character or life. At least I hope so. It is a sad situation and that is that. I will miss his art.. but others will miss so much more than that.

If by that you hope that it comes out that there is credible evidence that he did not purposely kick his own bucket then I can go along with that, but if that you mean that you hope that the Coroner's findings of fact are subordinated to other considerations I don't think that is something I can support.

Why not be honest and tell the truth?  Nothing good ever comes out of trying to spin facts into lies.

Political correctness has really gotten out of hand these days.
