Sad news. He was young.At my age, you're on borrowed time.
Sad about this one... my favorite singer of his generation.... when he sang I believed him... RIP..

You left behind a legacy of great music and memories
Condolences to your family and friends.
earlier today in Capitol Hill, Seattle
My small tribute. Really wish I was back in Seattle today.
I never got a chance to write a song to get him through hard times like he did for me. RIP man.
Terrible....Depression takes another one....
This is just so sad. Imagine the pain his family is suffering through right now. No words, man....
I always wondered if he was still shooting H. There was a time when grunge was taking off that heroin use gave you instant street cred.
Never stuck myself, but I spent about 14-15 months snorting a 1/4 gram each morning. Spent my senior year (of college 1997, 25 years old) all kinds of stoned.
I knew when I graduated I wasn't going to have that hook up anymore, so did my best to wean myself. Kept a small stash and tapered my usage.
But still there was about a month where I felt like crap. Was compensating by drinking a lot more bourbon.
Funny that Chris would go out like this. Just yesterday I was searching for an image of Soundgarden in the wind chime thread and saw this.
My first thought when I saw it was that you'd have to be a little suicidal/depressed to even joke around with a pistol in your mouth like that.
Of course, we don't know if it was a suicide. Might have been scarfing (autoerotic asphyxiation) a la Michael Hutchence.
Love that song too. Was his tribute to Mother Love Bone's lead singer Andy Wood after he passed.
i've never read anywhere that CC was into drugs..
only that he had been to rehab for alcohol.
which to me, is it's own little corner of substances to abuse.
maybe an explanation:
He said he was a pioneer in oxycontin abuse.
That tempers my anger and confusion somewhat, but it's still an unspeakable tragedy .
I've seen that now, too. A very sad part of an already tragic thing. I really do feel for his family.
He always struck me as a fairly normal guy so when I read it was suicide I was a little shocked. It may be that he was suicidal and no one knew, HOWEVER, if it was a side effect of taking too much of a drug that causes anxiety, paranoia, etc. then that really sucks.
In my long ago past I did many forms of drugs beyond alcohol and weed but I never experienced anything like the crazed, paranoid, fearful, anxiety/panic attacks...whatever you call it... that I've experienced a few times in recent years from prescription medication.
That's some truly scary stuff. A very sad way to die. He was a true talent. ...and the US is way too overmedicated.
If you're interested, here's Pete Thorn, who worked w/ Chris Cornell, talking about it.
It can really mess you up. With my lumbar spine being what it is, I,a few years ago(and stupidly,in retrospect) followed my doctor's suggestion to try an anti-depressent as a nerve block. Not only did it not work on the pain but, because I didn't need it for depression(because I don't have it) the side effect was that it MADE me depressed. Lesson learned, never again!
