Truly sad. We know so little about the effects of brain chemistry when it goes awry. Truly sad.

Great songwriter, guitar player and singer.
I thought of this when I heard how he died...

I caught the moon today
Pick it up
And throw it away alright
I got the perfect steal
A cleaner love
with a dirty feel all right
Fallout and take the bait eat the fruit and kiss the snake goodnight

Common ruse dirty face
Pretty noose is pretty hate
And I don't like
What you got me hanging from...

Too bad, too sad. :( R.I.P. Chris.

Chris was an amazing singer. It is sad he decided to end it like this. I wonder what snapped that made him want to die? did a write up on last night's concert where they said he seemed off and forgetful.

Megafrog: same here. What the hell happened?

It's not like Cobain, where he had a crippling addiction and a wife that mutual acquaintances have cast in a decidedly "not good" light.

Or maybe he did, and we haven't heard the whole story.

No matter. Sad to see someone who seemingly had everything going for him die at that age. I'm not his biggest fan, but... still.

Terribly sad, a big loss. A cool human being with one of the coolest rock and roll voices ever and a good family man.

I never understood all those drugs that have suicidal thoughts as a side effect. It's like, hey you think you have problems? Would you like to flip a coin?

And what's also terrible is the need for people to weigh in or guess on a situation they know very little about on social media and all the drug experts that come out of the woodwork "I take pills, I know what I'm taliking about"

Or the folks they will pounce on others for simply saying that not everyone understands anxiety and depression.

So sad his wife knew something was off that night, I simply wish it wouldn't have happened.
