It seems like yesterday when the newspapers announced the bad news to the world.

At 12:15 a.m. on May 18, 2017, his bodyguard found the artist unconscious in room 1136, at the MGM Grand in Detroit, Michigan. After the concert with Soundgarden, the singer returned to his room and that was the last time he was seen alive. He was 52 years old.

3 weeks after his death Youtube removed the video “Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart” where Chris played a criminal sentenced to death by hanging, but in the end, managed to save himself. The video is still available on Vimeo.

Do you know that Chris was tall 6ft 2 ½ (189.2 cm)?

The leader of Soundgarden and Audioslave had been suffering from depression for many years and as often happens to such famous artists, the abyss begins to open under their feet and they start to look inside.

As Nietzsche wrote, “If you gaze into the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you“.

And into that abyss, Chris Cornell fell and never really got out.

He tried to help himself with tranquilizers and anxiolytics but this emptiness that was feeling inside was never filled.

After the end of the marriage with Alice in Chains and Soundgarden manager Susan Silver in 2004, and after having a daughter in 2000 Lilian “Lilly’ Cornell Silver, Chris Cornell married Vicky Karayiannis. The two had two other children Toni Cornell and Christopher Nicholas Cornell.

Although the singer was very close to his family there was still a monster inside him that continued to undermine his tranquility.
