The passing of Chris Cornell, we’ve learned, is the result of a suicide.

And that’s breaking me. Hard.  The man was an icon to me.  A voice I so DESPERATELY tried to emulate from time to time, in my lame attempts to be a rockstar in my youth.

It is NEVER the answer.  People think it brings and end to the pain, but it only causes SO much more. So many unanswered questions, so many paths get altered.

Please. If you EVER need someone. Reach out.

DM me. @theryanlindsay. Email me., Call me ANY time.


There’s ALWAYS someone willing to listen, PLEASE try to reach out instead of shutting down.
