    He was a recovering addict you moron…if you didn’t like him or his music, your posting on here is crass, crude, disrespectful, unneeded and unwanted. Good day sir.

    no, actually, i can post what i want moron, so quit being self-righteous and defending an addict. pretty sure he was high when he killed himself and not ‘recovering.’

    I generally think that releasing any legal documents to the public, be it birth or death certificates, is just plain wrong. It’s just seeking cheap sensation in “more details”. And I do feel bad for clicking on this article and commenting.

    Don’t waste your time, sweetie! The person behind the account and the one who upvoted him (Hi Tom! How’s your parents’s basement?) are pathetic trolls with no friends (online friends don’t count motherfuckers) who still live with their parents and have nothing else to do than talk shit anonymously because they would never have the balls to do it in real life. Both are probably mobirdly fat, too. They know they would get curb stomped the second they left their basements ;)

    He had a half-empty bottle of liquor in the room, that is all. Please leave and show some respect for the dead, unless you truly have no humanity.

    He loved us, he said so in his last concert.
    All this bullshit, is just some fake puzzle.
    Chester knew some shit an he wanted change, his part could clearly influence us.
    Who ever put these Peace’s together are not his style.. we are human an we have those thoughts, he knew of all people how to pull those thoughts away.. proof is, he saved you and me A generation! He wouldn’t leave us in such a style that was not his own.
