Chris Cornell's death caused me immense pain the days that followed May 18th/17. Seeing him the year before during his Higher Truth tour Sunday, July 24th/16 in my city of Calgary, I saw a man who represented life. A commoner just like his admiring audience, his incredible voice filling up the Jack Singer Concert Hall and his musical expression through his beautifully crafted lyricism of struggles and triumphs.
SOUNDGARDEN, TEMPLE OF THE DOG, AUDIOSLAVE, CARRY ON, SCREAM, EUPHORIA MOURNING and HIGHER TRUTH. His artistic expression through his music, poetry and his voice will forever inspire me.
It was only for 3 days after he died I believed he ended his own life.
There was denial and then there was insight! I knew deep in my heart someone hurt him, someone killed him. Many others felt the same way, many others did not and I grew tired of fighting those who didn't share my beliefs and instead, I just focused solely on the muddled details, particularly from his wife.
I’ve discovered things about “her” while only looking for answers surrounding the circumstances of Chris’s death. I hated it, reading into people’s personal lives and stumbling upon useless information I never desired to know. Later on, pieces were coming together slowly unraveling the truth.
The conflicting and changing stories, timelines, the physical and forensic evidence, the absence of the supposed CCTV footage at the MGM, the absence of images and video footage of Chris signing autographs on his final night alive after his final gig, (this was officially reported) the one and only "fan" with an alleged signed ticket from Chris on his final night alive after the gig, (I'll discuss that "signed ticket" in a later post) to nobody (outside of a few medics) seeing Chris at the MGM, nor video footage or images of any commotion at the MGM where one of the greatest artists on planet Earth dies at, is ever seen!
In the age of smartphones, millions upon millions of video clips and pictures would be plastered all over social media of Chris Cornell on his last day on Earth if he was seen after his final gig that night.
You can make somebody cry Go on Do what you like I’ll be there by your side I know What the future holds You can set the world on fire Yeah if you want It isn’t hard I won’t be there looking on To see the trail of lies As you fall But I’ll take the truth The higher truth The higher truth I want the truth The higher truth The higher truth You can fill the world with pain Yeah if you want I've seen it now You can fill the world with hate I’ve seen it done before And I know how it all works out Make a promise if you can You know You’ll only break it Make a promise if you dare Go on right ahead And let’s see where it gets you But I’ll take the truth The higher truth The higher truth I want the truth The higher truth The higher truth Maybe you and I one day Will finally choose A higher truth Come let’s sit in the sun Feel the world spin around As the birds fly overhead Can’t you hear the waves Can’t you feel the rain As it falls upon your face I’ll take a truth A higher truth A higher truth I want the truth The higher truth A higher truth I’ll take a truth A higher truth A higher truth I want the truth The higher truth A higher truth Maybe you and I one day will finally choose A higher truth Can’t you feel the higher Can’t you feel the higher As it falls around? - The Higher Truth; Chris Cornell
This man DID NOT commit suicide. He would not have left his three children.
I love and I miss him so much.
