Sad News!!

I was saddened to hear about the most untimely death of legend, Chris Cornell. Even sadder, is the information that his suicide may have been exacerbated by his prescription to Ativan…a benzodiazepine, which is known to cause unrest, depression and suicidal ideation in people who are already prone to depression, overwhelming sadness, loss of impetus…

he was a driving force in the reconstruction of musical inspiration the world over. His music and lyrics changed the world, and his legend will live on well after we are long gone.

Soundgarden was one of the bands who changed my life…his songs, were so good, so well done, well thought out, that you felt every note, every word. His inspiration helped to forge the collective shape of music, and the re-telling of that great story…the one that so many others had given us through time.

I have no doubt that he was sent from that great pool of useful spirit energy, to remind us all that there is hope, love, positivity, as well as the darker side of human emotion and thought, which evokes a deeper understanding of what it is to be human. Why we’re here…what it is that makes us become who we are, and will be.

His music, his legend, will continue to impress and inspire us, for years, decades to come.

He will be sadly missed.

Chris Cornell

    1. Right on, Janyne! For me, music basically died in 1982, with the untimely death of Randy Rhoads…but, luckily we have had some incredible music since then. Let’s see where it goes from here…
