why he do it?
>>
oh you know bro
>>
read something about too much anxiety medication.
>>
Idk but the whole thing is surreal as fuck. After Audioslave broke up I never really followed Cornell a whole bunch except for Soundgarden getting back together; now he's all I'm seeing or hearing about. I was a real big fanboy of his work in my teens. Your childhood heroes seem immortal so when they die out of fuckin nowhere it's a little unsettling. Guy was young as fuck too so there's that.

he always seemed like the one with his shit sorted out
>>
He had been taking Ativan for anxiety, and he accidentally took a few too many. Side-effects of Ativan include suicidal thoughts, paranoia, slurring of speech and impaired judgement.

The slurring of his speech add up with how he was acting that night according to what people had been saying about their last show, and the phone call with his wife just a bit before he killed himself.

So basically, it's looking like these pills really fucked him up and sent him into a pilled up hazey craze.
>>
>>72874039
It was the only way he could get off. Many such cases of this. Sad!

except there's no telling if he accidentally took more or not, probably did it on purpose but not with intention to hang himself

Because most of you boys don't have personalities and emotional bonding with a boy only goes so far. Boys have sheep mentality but they don't like to show this to the outside world. Their egos are massive too, they don't want to be exposed after all. That is why their simple minds think that wearing a Chris or Cornell shirt will make them look like "deep and edgy" personalities. When in reality, they are nothing more than fragile simpletons covered in toxic masculinity. It's sad really. I feel bad for so called male "Chris Cornell music fans".

That's really sad. Crazy to think taking a few too many pills could have such a drastic effect. He seemed like he was doing so well too and was generally excited about touring. It's sad reading his last few tweets then realizing he's dead.

>>72874911

but I know I'm trying to fool myself

>>
>>72874572
What?
>>
>>72874792
But for how much longer?
Also, both of them easily could have done. Lanegan ended up in prison in his younger days due to his recklessness but turned himself around, and Arm had a heroin habit himself but managed to kick it.
>>
>>72874949
Not to mention he was still a great live performer. Some musicians might creatively get worn out as they age, but can still perform. It's a great loss for that alone since it deprives people the opportunity to experience performances by a grunge pioneer who was one of the best vocalists of his generation.
>>
>>72875035
yeah I had the opportunity to see his acoustic performance live
didn't have money then and I thought I'll just go next time

pretty pissed about that desu, even though I'm not a huge live person
>>
>>72875127
He played near me about a year ago, but I didn't go. I thought Soundgarden would probably tour this year or next and I'd see the band, and I really regret it now.

you should watch pete thorns video about cornell
he was saying the exact same thing
>>
>>72874705
Mike Starr and Andrew Wood did it too. Both from drug overdoses.

This is seriously sad to see Chris accidentally dying from taking one too many prescription pills and his judgment becoming impaired. Even though he took one too many than he was supposed to, a drug doesn't do you much good if it makes you suicidal.

I'm sad now
>>
>>72875737
yeah it's such a fucking pointless death and great loss
I can't imagine the pain of his family
kind of happy that he wasn't fully aware when he did it.
>>
>>72874303
That's not enough, that's half the story. anti-anxiety chems put him on a specific mood, but what could be the external stimulus that set it off?
>>
>>72875841
manic depression?
>>
>>72875968
that's still in the mood category. he's been depressed his entire life, what was different, what was a new low that night?

>>72875800
that's made this thing a whole lot easier for me.

Weed really needs to be legalized around America. Helps aid anxiety and doesn't cause stuff like this to happen. I have a friend who takes it for her anxiety, works for her.

>>72874572
what the fuck?

the difference is that he overdosed a drug that gives you suicidal thoughts and paranoia

>>72876481
I hear that hotel staff didn't let Chris' security guy into the room as he wasn't authorised.
I guess he did it right after they ended the call, and the time it took for his wife to call the guy and for him to go to the room and kick two doors down was time enough.

>Kirsten was in Cornell’s room about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday to help him fix his computer. Afterward, Kirsten gave Cornell two Ativan
>At 12:15 a.m. Thursday, Vicky Cornell phoned Kirsten and asked him to check on her husband, “to see if he is allright because he did not sound like he is okay,” the report said. Vicky Cornell told the bodyguard her husband sounded “groggy and just kept saying, ‘I am just tired,’ and hung up the phone.”

There's a police report on it here:
http://www.detroitnews.com/story/entertainment/music/2017/05/19/chris-cornell-suicide-police-report/101876200/
The conversation started at 11:35pm and she rang his bodyguard at 12:15am. The issue was that they couldn't get into the room because he'd latched it shut and he wasn't authorised to enter by the hotel, so he only got in when he kicked down that door and then the door to the bathroom much later. Medics didn't get into the room until just before 1am. What's sad is that if he had been allowed into the room, he might've been able to save him.

The sad thing is, I knew before this that Chris had had issues with anxiety and depression. He was very open about a time in his teens when he was so messed up with it all that he didn't even leave his house for months on end. That someone like that could conquer that and become such a great musician, and such a successful musician was really heartwarming and even inspirational to me. Now I just feel like some people just weren't made to be happy, you know?

Totally. Always seemed really articulate with a good, sometimes goofy, sense of humor in interviews. Seemed in decent shape most of the time too, even though he struggled a bit with alcohol from time to time. He even quit smoking cigarettes sometime during Audioslave.

I took Ativan for "awhile". Generalized anxiety and panic. I would like to think that he had a way better tolerance than some light weight. The mind is a complicated thing. Suicide is usually a culmination of many things. Not just one. I've been suicidal related to severe anxiety. Ativan melted that away. Benzos are very effective. With that, potentially addictive.

Me and my girlfriend at the time bought tickets to see him at the Royal Albert Hall last year.

I said to her, this is Chris Cornell, you'll regret it if you don't go. ''Nah, not been listening to him much recently''.
I took someone else, and it was fucking 10/10. She posted on facebook yesterday 'I can't believe I'll never see him perform'

He was a coke addict.
The only people of the 4 grunge bands that had their shit together were Mike Inez, Dave Grohl, Noveselic, Everyone in Soundgarden except Chris, Everyone in Pearl Jam except McCredy. Vedder was a bit of a mopey fuck in the mid 90s I don't know how serious that was.
>>
>>72879357

I still can't really believe it happened. Not a /mu/ regular as don't listen to music as much as I used to but loved Soundgarden since my early teens and still listenend to them now and then. One of my favourite vocalists ever and glad to have seen Audioslave live. Usually not bothered by people I don't personally know dying but this feels kinda personal for some reason. The fact he was reunited and on tour with Soundgarden makes it more poignant for me too. Just a sad senseless loss. He seemed to have it all.

it is strange for someone like him to off himself, and guy had money and job and a family he loved.

And anyone who heard black hole sun when it came out could never ignore those guys, they had talent.

Just cause none is posting about lets say Lynyrd Skynyrd or downloading it like mad, it does not mean people dont listen to them and know who they are...ffs.

You must be new or baiting. Whenever grunge is brought up on /mu/, contrarians shit on Nirvana, while praising AiC and Soundgarden. /mu/ unironically doesn't seem to like Pearl Jam too much, but the other big three are very much respected. This is a sad loss.

Ativan is the most abundantly prescribed benzo in the west. If you go to a regular doctor or psychologist and complain about panic attacks or w/e they will readily prescribe it to you as a less addictive alternative to xanax . Ativan completely shatters your inhibitions and makes you looped as fuck. If you go an an ativan binge you're more than likely to wake up to find evidence of yourself doing a bunch of shit the night before that you have no recollection of doing. Thugs take ativan and other benzos to go do shit like B&E a store without feeling anxious/inhibited.
>be struggling with depression and anxiety
>self medicate with a high dose sedative/hypnotic meant to treat panic attacks
>sedative hypnotic numbs your CNS and shatters all inhibitions
>"fuck it, i'll just neck myself"

It's really that simple. I've struggled with benzo addiction and have been in this exact scenario many times, but clearly I was never depressed enough to actually snap and neck myself under the influence. Or I didn't have the balls to do it. Depends on your point of view.

This is hitting me real hard. I mean, he seemed to be in a such a happy place, and yeah, he might have been depressed, but at least he had music as an outlet.

That's the best part. If he sounded more like Layne we'd be calling him a hack or a tryhard.

>>72893300
I suppose you're right, my biggest gripe is that he just never really takes the lead like Layne did (at least pre-S/T). It's almost always him and Jerry. I guess if you loved the S/T then the new music is probably for you but I always felt that their greatest work when Layne was alive was with Facelift, Dirt, and their EP's.

>“The funniest memory I have of Chris goes back to Christmas time, maybe seven years ago. I’m in Culver City, [Calif.], of all places. It’s almost Christmas Eve, and I’m walking through a Toys ‘R’ Us. Everything had been picked through. Nobody was really shopping because it was two hours before Christmas Eve and I see this guy — tall, super-handsome dude and he’s over picking through the girls’ section. I got my shopping cart and all my toys are for boys and there’s Chris, and his shopping cart has dolls and princess outfits. He’s looking at my shopping cart with baseball bats and footballs and he says to me, ‘I got the very last Sleeping Beauty Castle. Sold out.’ He was so proud, he was trying to brag to me he got the very last fairy princess castle."

I've always considered Soundgarden (along with Chris' other projects) among my favorite artists but this is really reaffirming how much I love all of his music and how much it means to me. Giving me a lot of perspectives.

I always felt fortunate I was too young to be affected by the deaths of Kurt and Layne. But now we all have to go through it. It's fucking inescapable. Andy Wood, Kurt Cobain, Layne Staley, Scott Weiland and Chris Cornell. FUCK

a lot of pressure being a good front man. Everyone wants their band to sell and to perform in front of many people. Most great artists want nothing to do with all the other things it entails and aren't emotionally equipped to handle it.

Being on the road forces you to miss out being there for the people you care about which I imagine can leave you with a lot of guilt over time. Chris never seemed to take a break from it all and always seemed to manage his work with aplomb. That may have belied what his lyrics have been telling us all along.
