    Oof. What a kick in the gut. This is so sad. I wonder if it could have been autoerotic asphyxiation? All these lives extinguished too early from mental illness/addiction. Lane Staley, Scott Weiland and Chris Cornell-just so, so sad.

    You know, I thought of that too.
    My BF brought up a good point though...
    doesn't seem like a lead singer in the middle of a tour would be risk tying something around their throat.

    I don't know what to think. My thoughts and prayers for his wife and children, his family, and his band mates, and all his friends and fans.

    According to our sources, Vicky says Chris was NOT in any way, shape or form in a suicidal state.
    Vicky told people Thursday morning he was devoted to his kids -- ages 16, 12 and 11 -- and she didn't believe he would take his life.

    Something made her call a friend to check up on him at 12am and this friend concerned enough to "force" his way in. Something, at least, that day or evening made her concerned.

    That's why I'm wondering if he was using again. Maybe she knew and was worried about an OD?

    ETA.....don't have a link, but my BF is saying it's official now.....he did hang himself.

    Could it be auto-asphyxiation? That's what happened to Michael Hutchence from INXS.

    Yes, the eternal quest for la petite mort, and unfortunately finding the larger, permanent variety.

    An account of CC last performance. He said even without hindsight it was clear something was wrong.

    Just stopped by to pay my respects. One of my favourite bands/singers, such an incredible voice.

    RIP Chris, raising a glass to you tonight.

    perhaps his wife contacted the friend simply because she could not reach CC via phone, etc. and only THEN began to fret. Regardless, this one hits hard. Rest easy big fella.
