I agree with you, Chris. Nonetheless, that doesn't take away the pain his family must feel.
Chris Cornell was an extremely talented and intelligent man. I read an interview with him some years ago where he spoke of sobering up and reforming Sound Garden. He said the creativity of the band had never been higher since the booze bottles and drugs were no longer part of the scene. I'm a big fan of Cornell's work and will miss him greatly.
Some may blame him for bad choices, but who hasn't made those? Some of us are lucky enough to redeem themselves, and it certainly seemed he was trying and was somewhat successful.
I wish his poor family the best. I will miss him, my son misses him, and I know many will too.
Right, blame the pills. It just goes to show you, life without Jesus Christ can lead to suicide. Also, stop covering for this loser. he took himself away from his family, and that is inexcusible. No reason for this. Just like Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain, if you kill yourself when you have a family or have it all, you are a loser.
Benzos are one of THE worst psychotropic 'legal' drugs prescribed, and doctors are far too quick to (over) prescribe them. They are extremely difficult to withdraw from and cause major mood changes. In fact, every time I hear about a mass shooting or some other inexplicable murderous rampage, I automatically think that one of these anti-anxiety, anti-depressant, anti-whatever is involved.
That very well could be what happened. I had a bad reaction to Ativan. There were blackouts where according to family , I did bizarre things. It is a wonder I didn't hurt myself. If this is the reason, please put that knowledge to good use, in his honor. I'm so sorry., so sorry for your loss.
Taking a few Latvian is not going to cause someone to commit suicide anymore than having a few drinks, actually that alcohol is worse, stop trying to push anti- anxiety medication propaganda. Sounds more like the guy was murdered and than covered up.
