Chris Cornell, 1964-2017

We can't not add Chris Cornell to this thread -- what a loss to music, and such a sad death. Although most music fans here are already well aware of his death last week, I didn't have much to say about it. I liked his music, but aside from Temple of the Dog, I didn't own any of his CDs. But, reading this article today, I wanted to post a segment from it -- it's so well written. Those of us from Chris's generation will see truth in this:



Quote
It’s possible that, along with grunge, Generation X’s other great gift to society is depression. I mean, of course it was here long before the Baby Boomers started re-producing, but we talk about it more than those who came before us. We talk about it as a demon or a monster. It’s a dark shadow that shows itself at any point in time without warning. It surrounds us, isolates us, and quiets us. Depression likes to blame things. We feel like $#!t because of mistakes we have made in life or because of the state of the world or because we aren’t perfect. Without a lot of help and a lot of work, it’s impossible to know that it really is a chemical imbalance in our brains. After twenty-plus years of trying to de-stigmatize depression, some of us still have a hard time recognizing it for what it is. And even then, it doesn’t always matter.

You might think grunge is about anger, but that’s not completely true. Yes, it can sound that way, but it’s really about depression and cynicism. Those two go hand-in-hand, along with their nasty little sister, anxiety. When the three of them get going, they just eat hope as quickly as it can be summoned. That leaves despair and despair is exhausting, not just for those who experience it, but for the people around it as well. So we keep it to ourselves because we don’t want to be a burden. And then it gets to be too much. Doesn’t matter if you’re a student, a mom, an accountant or a rock star. It doesn’t matter if you’ve written about it your entire life as a means of keeping it at bay. It doesn’t matter if the music you made about it brought in fame, respect and millions of dollars. It doesn’t matter if your entire generation has suffered from it. Depression makes you feel totally alone. You hit the breaking point, and then, like Chris Cornell, you die alone in the bathroom.

This was a well-respected member of his community; a beloved musical hero who seemed to have it all together. This could have been any of us. And brothers and sisters, if it’s you, don’t mess around with it. Please find some help.

Cornell is speaking to us all one last time. This isn’t something we left behind with our twenties. This isn’t something cured by age or financial security. This isn’t something you “outgrow.” If it’s allowed to fester, depression is stronger than wisdom. Depression is insidious and tenacious. Depression can get to anybody. It can make you feel like an old man at 27. It can make you feel lost as a child at 52.

Yeah, depression sucks.  I know.  It is not your friend.  It can become your biggest foe, worst nightmare and ultimate, most bitter enemy. 

God Bless you, Mr. Cornell.  May you Rest In Peace, sir.

My condolences, Gant! It's hard to lose your mother. I still miss mine dearly, even after so many years.

True.  ;D  It was a Magnum Force quote that went through my head at the thought of Adam West passing.  My brother and I used to watch the Adam West Batman every day right before dinner. Pow - Sock -  Kaboom!  Somedays you just can't get rid of a bomb.
