It’s not what you think

A well written piece on singer Chris Cornell’s death and Depression.

The First Ten Words by Rich Larson

Chris Cornell, 1964-2017

Chris Cornell died early Thursday morning. His band Soundgarden played a show on Wednesday night at the Fox Theater in Detroit. Two hours after the show ended, he was gone.

For two days, I’ve been working on a piece to pay tribute to him, and it’s been a struggle. Usually when I have a problem like this it’s because I’m staring at a blank screen trying to figure out what I want to say. That’s not the problem this time. The problem is I have way too much to say.

I agree though so sad for his family, his kids were around 11 or 12 and he has three, so that’s got to be hard on them and his wife. He sounds like a devoted family man despite the huge weight he carried with him.

        Terrible to hear he has young kids. I didn’t mind Soundgarden. Pearl Jam did nothing for me. Nirvana were alright. Liked Alice in Chains a lot.
