I posted this because I know some of you are about my age and lived the whole “grunge” era. I’m still stuck in that era and never stopped loving the music that came out of Seattle during the 90’s. I especially was a huge fan of Soundgarden and Alice in Chains, both of which are without their original frontmen now.
I also posted this because it’s a way for me to cope. It’s not 100% clear why he died, but it does appear to be suicide. I’ve dealt with suicide in my life way more than anyone should have to, and I’m kind of sick of it. It fucking hurts. It hurts everyone around the person that decides there’s nothing else to live for. In this case, it hurts millions because he was so talented and well-known.
i’m sorry i just needed to vent a little. i personally know 5 people that have committed suicide. it fucking sucks so bad. a friend of mine, who’s father committed suicide a few years ago, got involved with a charity to help prevent suicide. I’ve decided to join her and do what I can to help.
Also, the national Suicide Prevention Hotline: 1-800-273-8255
