    This sucks but I'm pretty sure this is a Mayberry thread.

    Now if Zack de la Rocha died it might be a WR thread.

    when these guys kill themselves it makes me wonder where they're at in life

    still rich and dependent, broke, or does living your dream and then going back to mediocrity proof to be too much to handle?

    Chris wasn't wallowing in mediocrity though. While some of his solo ventures weren't met with critical success, he generally maintained a strong following with through his previous efforts with Soundgarden and Audioslave. His later solo acoustic gigs were typically sold out affairs and his recent efforts with the reformed Soundgarden had met with interest and success. Throw in that he had the respect of his musical peers and collaborated successfully with a number of them and the work he did with various movie soundtracks and I'd say he was still a successful artist.

    He could have still had soooo many chicks lol. Weird after a show really close to me here in dtown. Soundgarden was more of a radio band in the 90s, and I hate black hike sun, but outshined was a great radio tune and you can't deny his voice.

    So, police apparently found him the bathroom and there are reports that he had something around his neck. The police are tentatively ruling it a suicide pending further investigation. Seriously hope he didn't Caradine himself.

    It's very popular these days tbh

    but I think the correct way to do it is to have a spotter.
