    He's a pretty avid pot head and red wine aficionado, but I don't think he's anywhere close to early grave territory with either. I think McCready was the only one in PJ to get into the hard stuff, and he's been past that since the late 90's.

    That said, I thought Cornell had things squared away.

    Looks like it's being confirmed now that it was suicide.

    “The Medical Examiner has completed the autopsy on 52-year-old Chris Cornell, the Soundgarden musician who died last night in Detroit. The cause of death has been determined as hanging by suicide. A full autopsy report has not yet been completed. There is no additional information at this time.”

    Richards kicked heroin in the early 80's. He just does weed, booze, and cigarettes these days. Granted he has to have cockroach DNA, but his really bad period was shorter than people think.

    It's sounding more and more like Cornell was suicide. Mentally, Keith Richards is pretty damn healthy.

    Sounds like he's battled depression since his teen years.

    Suicide sucks. Losing someone close to suicide really sucks. My thoughts are with his friends and family.

    This sucks big time, I was never a huge Soundgarden fan, was more into Pearl Jam growing up, but Audioslave was some amazing stuff. I like some of his solo and acoustic work also.

    I know it's not a popular opinion, but I love his Scream album.

    I really loved a lot of the non radio tracks from bad motor finger. Out of enjoyment for heaviness, that was their best effort IMO.

    I remember someone writing into Metal Maniacs (magazine) in the early 90's complaining that Sound Garden was just some band cleverly re-hashing Black Sabbath's music, and nobody could see them for what they were doing. That's how music works dude...

    This news really sucks. Was kicking around with gf just a couple days ago if we should head to the show in Denver Monday night. Guess we'll just have to spin Temple of the Dog and pay respects instead.

    I've read that his liver can be seen protruding from his abdomen.
