|Goodbye to wife and young kids.|
UPDATE: Maybe what killed Cornell was a toxic allopathic prescription "medicine" called Ativan, the side effects of which are suicidal ideation or acting out. That would make his yet another iatrogenic death; doctors kill more people in the US with legally prescribed drugs being used as directed than were killed in Vietnam. What killed Nirvana's Kurt Cobain? Assuming it was not Courtney Love, as one private investigator hired by Love concluded (and that's the story we believe, but her lawyers say we better not say it without adding "allegedly" or else), it was a shotgun to the face.

The 52-year-old performed at the Rock City venue the Fox Theatre, tweeting about his excitement for the show just shortly before the performance [proving how fake social media posts are, because you're on the verge of suicide or death by possession and still tweeting, "woo-hoo, rock 'n roll" or some such].
The rocker performed fan favorites "Rusty Cage," "Spoonman," and "Outshined" [and most poignantly Led Zeppelin's "In My Time of Dying"] at the sold out gig [a site sure to be rampant with inimical spirits looking for physical expression of their anguish or malevolence, but that's just opinion and no "right minded" person would even countenance such a thought], part of Soundgarden's tour of the United States, which still had six dates left.

|Suicide? Why'd you do it, man? - Hey, maybe I was killed like all the others?|
In a statement to The Associated Press, his representative Brian Bumbery said the singer died Wednesday night in Detroit.
Bumbery labelled the death "sudden and unexpected," with the family set to work closely with the medical examiner to determine the cause of death.
Soundgarden split up in 1997 and reunited in 2010; their last record was King Animal in 2012. During their 13-year hiatus, Cornell went through a dark period and was admitted to rehab for alcohol addiction [aka alcoholism].
Although, in an interview in 2012, he said that he would have ended up there anyway. He said: "It’s something that would have happened even if Soundgarden had stayed together. It was a long slow slide and then a long slow recovery, but there was self-discovery, too.
"For me it was mostly alcohol [mostly? you mean there were illicit drugs, too?] -- from my late teens until my late thirties." #chriscornell
Daddy, they kill rock stars, don't they?

|The government assassinates rock stars|
Constantine cites a government intelligence memorandum that advised agents on a variety of methods to disrupt the lives of popular musicians. This document, revealed in 1976, suggested tactics such as
- destroying marriages,
- planting disparaging newspaper articles, and
- fostering rivalries among competing artists.
|The US government's Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) would never harm anyone.|
Regarding the death of Hendrix, Constantine explained that, despite newspaper reports that blamed a heroin overdose, physicians who treated Hendrix reported red wine gushed out of his lungs and that he actually died from drowning.
|Who are these "powers that be"?|
And Cass was felled by the U.S. government because of her "encyclopedic knowledge of the Nixon administration." Ultimately, Constantine surmises that the agenda behind this spate of secret assassinations is to "kill off the political musicians and replace them with, basically, [as bland and consumer-oriented as] disco."
