Chris Cornell ……,

…….., well what can I say that hasn’t already been said ? 

I think the main thing that everyone who whether they were close personal friends / band members/ fans / or as I did knew him through working in the industry are feeling numb 

Of course we all are going to go at some point but I don’t think you could point one person out and say they knew Chris would be dead this year 

To go from being happy as anything on stage telling the Detroit crowd that the next audience on the tour wouldn’t be as good as them to well flicking the switch is what we can’t understand 

The guy must have been in such a dark place to even consider it , to not be able to reach out to someone and just say I need help just makes it heartbreaking 

I won’t be the first to say that being on tour can be the loneliest place in the world , may look like we’re living the life of Riley even on a crew basis but there are times where you want your friends and family around you , where you want your own bed , to be able to close the front door and not have to live out of a suitcase for weeks on end 

I was lucky enough to have met Chris many a time with festivals or being in the same places when in tour – to an outsider he came across as shy at times , but he was the sweetest , most loving , talented guy around – the voice pure whiskey 100% 

Wherever you are Chris I hope you’re happy and at peace now, it was a pleasure & a privilege to have known you , sweet dreams darling man I love you . 

Philadelphia & malibu πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

So after an unexpected cancelled slot in Philly leaving me with 2 days free and not wanting to stay anywhere near the band decided to escape to malibu with old friends from New Jersey ​
