    As selfish as it gets. He had it all and he just tossed it out without a single consideration for those who love him.

    Suicide is so annoying get help!!

  • Shell

    This is one of these it’s a surprise but it isn’t moments. Even from the start, he was honest about his demons and the times they almost got the better of him before. Some of the lyrics from his last few songs have been quite dark so maybe he he was in the middle of a low period and with what happened with Chris, I guess it’s all been too much.

    no one knows what he was going through over the years

  • Domino

    It’s called depression.

  • DEADP00L

    Depression over a friend VS the love for SIX of his own children?! Why was he alone then? Why leave him in a room, much less a house all alone if he was depressed to that degree?! I will NEVER understand the Music industry or Hollywood family dynamics.

    I don’t know, you didn’t live in his head. I have clinical depression and I used to have suicidal thoughts. I’m much better now but I know what it feels like to want to die. You truly believe everyone will be better off without you because you’re garbage, he probably thought it was the best for his children. I don’t think he killed himself over Chris Cornell. Who knows what was going through his head though. I get that it’s hard to understand for people who don’t suffer depression though.
