Still trying to wrap my mind around how he played a show, then went to a lonely hotel room and did what he did.

His voice and poetry were gifts. Hard to believe he is gone. This is a heavy blow.

My thoughts go out to his family. I don’t know what else to say. I’m stunned, saddened.

This broke my heart. I cannot explain this, but it never mattered how dark the song was he was singing, that voice made me smile. I can’t say that about anyone else. I loved his talent. That voice can’t be duplicated. I used to joke he could have followed me around singing obnoxious commercial jingles and I would have been happy. I was kinda pissed that my husband and son missed my not so subtle hints I wanted to see Soundgarden when they were here the day after my birthday in Atlanta a couple weeks ago. I never saw him or Soundgarden or Audioslave and I regret the hell out of that. Concert tickets have become insanely expensive too, and well, money matters when you have bills and kids and cars.

Something else has popped up in the newsfeeds I read about his death. He had been on the phone with his wife and was slurring words, he told her his anxiety had been kicking in harder than usual and he took 4 Ativan instead of 2 . She was worried and got someone to check on him and that’s when he was found. I guess in the end he’s still just as gone. If this is at all true of course. I’m just so sad about it. Fuck.

Thank you for this perspective. It’s comforting. And educational.

This is so heartbreaking. His voice was like no other. I really, really wish I understood the phenomena of suicide. This is just something I cannot wrap my head around. Shine on you crazy diamond. You are already missed.
