Prince’s music is the soundtrack to the soulful and beautiful universe he created, and we have all been privileged to be part of that amazing world.


I performed his song "Nothing Compares 2 U" for the first time a couple months ago. It has a timeless relevance for me and practically everyone I know.


Sadly, now his own lyrics in this song could not be more relevant than at this moment, and I sing them now in reverence as I pay tribute to this unequaled artist who has given all of our lives so much inspiration and made the world so much more interesting.


We will miss you Prince!!!








And we will miss you, Chris. rose RIP



OMG 😢
Just fun....nothing ethereal.

Chris Cornell's Wife Issues Statement, Blames Anxiety Medicine for Suicide

"When we spoke after the show, I noticed he was slurring his words," Vicky Cornell says. "He was different"

Chris Cornell's wife Vicky issued a statement speculating whether his suicide was the result of too much anxiety medication. David Buchan/Rex

Vicky Cornell, the wife of Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell, issued a statement Friday morning where she remembered her late husband, who died Thursday morning at the age of 52, and speculated whether his suicide was the result of taking too much of his anxiety medication.

Chris Cornell: 15 Essential Songs

The singer's most memorable moments: Soundgarden's grunge classics, Audioslave's hits and his poetic solo material

"Chris's death is a loss that escapes words and has created an emptiness in my heart that will never be filled. As everyone who knew him commented, Chris was a devoted father and husband. He was my best friend," Vicky wrote.

"His world revolved around his family first and, of course, his music second. He flew home for Mother's Day to spend time with our family. He flew out mid-day Wednesday, the day of the show, after spending time with the children. When we spoke before the show, we discussed plans for a vacation over Memorial Day and other things we wanted to do."

However, following Soundgarden's concert Wednesday night, Vicky noticed a change in her husband's demeanor when they talked on the phone after the show.

"When we spoke after the show, I noticed he was slurring his words; he was different. When he told me he may have taken an extra Ativan or two, I contacted security and asked that they check on him," she continued. "What happened is inexplicable and I am hopeful that further medical reports will provide additional details. I know that he loved our children and he would not hurt them by intentionally taking his own life."

An attorney for the Cornell family, Kirk Pasich, reiterated Vicky's belief that an extra dosage of Ativan, an anxiety medication often employed by recovering addicts, altered Chris Cornell's mental faculties after the Detroit show. Pasich added that the Cornell family is "disturbed at inferences that Chris knowingly and intentionally took his life."

"Without the results of toxicology tests, we do not know what was going on with Chris — or if any substances contributed to his demise," Pasich said. "Chris, a recovering addict, had a prescription for Ativan and may have taken more Ativan than recommended dosages. The family believes that if Chris took his life, he did not know what he was doing, and that drugs or other substances may have affected his actions."

Pasich added that side effects of Ativan include "paranoid or suicidal thoughts, slurred speech and impaired judgment"; Vicky Cornell noted her husband's slurred speech following the Detroit concert in her statement.

She added, "The outpouring of love and support from his fans, friends and family means so much more to us than anyone can know. Thank you for that, and for understanding how difficult this is for us."

Hours after Cornell's death at a Detroit hotel, a medical examiner's report confirmed that the singer had died by suicide.

Chris Cornell, lead singer for Soundgarden, has died at age 52. Watch here.

mostly - but remember within groups of people there are always pieces of garbage. Mostly it's good but I've seen some stuff in forums - and a NY times article that is blowing all that out of proportion and being crude and disrespectful.

I was just at the Soundgarden show in Wisconsin last Sat and he destroyed that set like none other. So surreal right now...

How amazing is it that this medicine he was prescribed to recover from anxiety has a side effect of "suicidal thoughts" and YET it is still on the market, and people do not FREAK the fuck out, and yet if god forbid there is a supply of "bad cheese" on the market there is a recall and law suits and shut downs, what a stupid backwards country we live in RULED by the pharma mentality!

Depression, combined with drugs never ends well.

.

Not sure if drugs were involved, but he had a history of addiction.

- Yes, but I said it because sometimes people cant understand how a person who had a lovely family, or whatever, could take his/her own life. Some of them (not you, of course) often call these people egotistical ("He has 3 children. Didnt he think about them?") but the situation seems to be so hard that a person almost has no choice.

,

In some cases, like Kurt Cobain, who always looked depressed, we understand more and could feel it coming. But some years ago, a brazilian artist went to a dinner with his wife and some friends. When they got home, he locked himself in the studio and committed suicide. And nobody who was with him in the restaurant said they noticed anything strange about him. Same thing about Cornell. His wife said he didnt show any sign he would do it.

[Edited 5/18/17 14:21pm]

.

They say that usually the one's who suffer in silence (don't talk about it) are the one's who commit suicide.

.

You think a person has everything, but depression takes over and that person is not thinking logically, and they are not thinking about reaching out to anyone because they are at the end of their rope and feel hopeless. But, it doesn't have to be that way.

.

The sad part is that there is help and their IS hope. My heart goes out to this family because they are left to suffer the most.

cloveringold85 said: He did have an off-and-on history with substance abuse, yet his worst days were as a teenager, but he said music saved him and got him sober. In fact Soundgarden was known to be a teetotaling band compared to their contemporaries like Nirvana and Alice in Chains. He did relapse with painkillers and alcohol around 2000 when he had some type of injury and was also going through an ugly divorce, but he cleaned himself up again. However, he admitted to suffering from clinical depression ever since his teen years, so this makes his death all the more tragic. sad cry sad pray rose dove guitar typing

Gosh, I don’t want to write a ‘book’ but Clinical Depression is a level of depression that is not easily described; it’s more than a bad day, it’s finding yourself in a deep dark hole where any life joy is eaten away by this monster (the disease) and there is seemingly no way out. In fact, many who do resort to suicide appear at peace and in some cases happy, in the days prior to death, as they have made their decision and are fianally at peace knowing their pain will end. This is another disease (in addition to addiction) which is so misunderstood and is tears families apart.
.
So much more education is needed. Drug use is a form of self medicating, the depressed person does not know or realize that real treatment is available, and does not realize that it is not weakness to accept help. In addition, the person has to be convinced there is something to live for which is a difficult task even when the person has a loving family, is otherwise healthy and all the money they need. Clinical depression much of the time does not go away… one always has to be on the lookout for symptoms and take action when warning signs first appear in a relapse situation or when current medication is not adequate any longer. I am not a professional, just someone who has seen the effects of clinical depression and what it does to families first hand. If I’ve stated anything wrong, someone please correct me.
.
I am so sorry for this man’s suffering and send my condolences to his friends and family. Such a loss. RIP Chris.

.

Very true!

.

A lot of people don't understand what clinical depression is. Some people think "Just cheer up, things will get better." Nah, it's not that easy. My Mother (passed in 2014), was diagnosed with Bi-Polar depression. She had a troubled childhood and went through a lot of emotional problems in her life. Sometimes, it is a chemcial imbalance in the brain, other times, it is brought on by physical or emotional trauma. It's very complex to assess, and if anyone feels like they are clinically depressed (feeling down all the time or most of the time), then they should be evaluated by a medical professional. We all have ups and downs in life, but clinical depression is a disease that can be treated.

This is so incredbily sad. Doctor's usually don't prescribe too many anti-anxiety meds at one time, in order to prevent any overdose from happening. Also, anti-anxiety pills are easy to become addicted to.

I'm still in such shock.Fortunately, I got to see him in Cincinnati in July 2016 and was incredible.His voice so powerful but serene at the same time. What a humble man whom we all felt such a privilege to witness his talent.Chris, along with his other band 'Temple of the Dog'sold out Madison Square Garden last year having only released one album 25 years ago and no tour to support it.I will forever miss him.

I don't have words yet, probably never will. I've dealt with death both tangible and peripheral a lot in the last few years and I just don't know that I have anything left to say about it. Here's this. Surprised it hasn't been posted yet.






Summer nights and long warm days
Are stolen as the old moon falls
My mirror shows another face
Another place to hide it all
Another place to hide it all

And I'm lost behind
The words I'll never find
And I'm left behind
As seasons roll on by

Sleeping with a full moon blanket
Sand and feathers for my head
Dreams have never been the answer
And dreams have never made my bed
Dreams have never made my bed

And I'm lost behind
The words I'll never find
And I'm left behind
As seasons roll on by

Now I wanna fly above the storm
But you can't grow feathers in the rain
And the naked floor is cold as hell
This naked floor reminds me
Oh the naked floor reminds me

And I'm lost behind
Words I'll never find
And I'm left behind
As seasons roll on by

If I should be short on words
And long on things to say
Could you crawl into my world
And take me worlds away?
Should I be beside myself
And not even stay

And I'm lost behind
Words I'll never find
And I'm left behind
As seasons roll on by


Beautiful but haunting song.Be at peace

Very sad, wasn't a huge fan myself but a friend was and i'd seen him live quite a few times in the past few years, he always put on a great show. Last time I saw him was only a year ago.

The chords and time signatures he put in his songs nuts, he was really out on his own songwriting wise, highly underrated.

- True, but anti-anxiety meds, as far as I know, dont kill (unless they are combined with other drugs). And I am wondering how an extra Ativan pill could have triggered suicidal feelings.

It is LITERALLY one of the side effects of taking the drug, as us slurred speech. As I understand it, he told his wife over the phone that he took more than usual when she noticed his speech was slurred. https://www.drugs.com/ativan.html

Ativan side effects

Get emergency medical help if you have signs of an allergic reaction to Ativan: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.

Call your doctor at once if you have:

  • severe drowsiness;

  • thoughts of suicide or hurting yourself;

  • unusual changes in mood or behavior;

  • confusion, aggression, hallucinations;

  • worsened sleep problems;

  • sudden restless feeling or excitement;

  • muscle weakness, drooping eyelids, trouble swallowing;

  • vision changes; or

  • upper stomach pain, dark urine, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes).

Common Ativan side effects may include:

  • dizziness, drowsiness;

  • weakness;

  • slurred speech, lack of balance or coordination;

  • memory problems; or

  • feeling unsteady.

ya, i know it pisses off feminists, everything pisses off feminists, i'm just being honest, it was the first thing that came to my mind. Now the woman is playing cover my ass by saying some drugs did it to him. No one wants to be a yoko ono or even a priscilla presley, not to mention courtney love. I said it and I meant it, i don't know what's wrong with some of these men, some kind of mommy issue or something. I don't like seeing women fall for guy like that either which probably happens even MORE if I'm being honest. I just don't like seeing anyone played with and taken advantage of, that's just me.

when a family member dies people don't think to rational and would blame just about anything. The bottom line is the guy had to be somewhat unstable. I wasn't a fan but he was a phenomenal singer and he sounded like a decent guy. He's from my town and I knew a guy who washed his windows once a couple decades ago. Outside of that, I never had much use for grunge, the drugs, the wallowing in self pity and the plain disrespect most of the musicians had for their predecessors.

prince was taking an anti anxiety med too wasnt' he? I always thought that was kind of odd because I honestly don't think they are necessary for shit, I have anxieties too I just avoid a lot of things, mainly people (women too) but it isn't anything i'd ever take a pill for. so it surprised me that prince was taking anything like that.

.

- In some cases, anxiety gets so extreme that people HAVE to take them. I had severe agoraphobia for some years and took them. In my case, it didnt help much. My doctor said it´s because I dont trust pills. But some people do. Today, I dont take them.

.

But I realize that in today´s world, lots of people really dont need them. Sometimes, they dont have depression or anxiety in a pathological level. They only want to kill the ´bad´ feelings. But some really do. However, I couldnt imagine why Prince took them. Maybe he was too shy and had to have something because he was always exposed? Who knows?

- Wow. But I wonder if an extra pill was enough if he was ok. He seemed kind of excited about the Detroit concert and his wife said he never seemed like in a suicidal mood. So, I thought it would be very strange if a pill changed things so much if he was OK.

On the other hand, people said he wasnt so well during the concert, and that he said something like ´I feel bad for the next city´(people thought he was talking about the audience not being as great as Detroit, but it has a whole new meaning now...). Mysteries...

Peace
