    This sort of reminds me of Kurt Cobain speaking to the crowd at one of Nirvana’s concerts: “Please everyone, tell Courtney you love her, (holds the microphone out), she doesn’t think you love her.”

    At least Chester’s wife is talking about suicide and depression. That’s more than I can say for VK and Clare! You’re REALLY pushing the addiction narrative! Disgraceful! Why?? What exactly was Chris addicted to when he died? Answer that — and please don’t say Ativan, that will just confirm a lot of people’s belief about what the real motive is here.

      I agree Cathy…’s so unfair of Vicki Cornell to suggest that he relapsed. So many people in middle age have a variety of drugs prescribed by their doctors for various ailments….and many people spend their lives with Ativan if they have severe anxiety. Can you imagine the grueling schedule that Chris had, the pressure he was under and dealing with a migraine that night as well? Why does she not understand the toxicology report?
