    Never a fan of the band but mental illness sucks. He was friends with Chris Cornell and I bet the fact that yesterday would've been Cornell's birthday made things worse for him.

    Hello wave
    Yea, someone else on my facebook feed didnt like my comment either but like i told them ive been dealing with depression and suicidal thoughts for years. I just get annoyed when its all of a sudden such a big deal when it happens to be someone famous and all of a sudden people care. His shitty band aside so many people deal with this issue who arent rich and famous and yet no one ever bats an eye. Still waiting for Buff to come in and say what selfish coward he was for leaving his kids and wife behind.

Then we got Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park, Blink 182 and I checked out for about a decade.

    There was some good stuff in the 2000's, but it was the first time I felt like an old man music-wise. I appreciate some of it now but hated it at the time.

    You just said it was too soon. Implying later would be ok.

    Be clearer in your original post and I won't need to school you like this

    There was already a thread about it that got deleted by the thread starter. You missed out on what you were waiting for. For what it's worth....it was a selfish act. You just don't do that when you have kids. The mental scars you're inflicting on them are leading them right down the same mental illness path you took your own life over.

    Well, thats just it. Do we see mental illness as some kind of logical behavior or thinking? I said the same thing back then when Buff brought it up the first time and that its not as easy as saying you dont do that if you have kids. Personally, the pain of losing someone affects everyone in your life, not just the kids. But for those of us who deal with this kind of thing it isnt just a switch you can turn on and off and when the switch is turned on the darkness that envelopes you is severe and the logic of anything else going on isnt at the forefront. But by making the statement "it was a selfish act" you are then saying that the kids lives outweigh or are more important than Chester's which i disagree with whole heartily. Men, women, children should all be valued the same. Perhaps it was this attitude and lack of empathy that lead to Chester calling it a day.

    His obligation to his kids trumps everything.

    I thought that what North meant by too soon was did he die too soon. but North you are talking about too soon to make fun of LP music, is that right?

    It's a bit different in his case vs. the everyday Joe, he had the means to seek help. Perhaps it was him placing himself above all else and valuing his feelings over those of his loved ones that lead to him "calling it a day". I guess it's all part of perspective.

    I dont disagree with the notion he had a lot more opportunity (especially financially) to get help. But i would still have to wonder how you would rank the type of trauma he had, how do you really gauge something like that? Im quite sure he loved his kids very much but eventually succumbed to the past demons he had.
