His music sadly brought nothing of any good to the world and after a few generations no one will have any clue who he was.



I am sad that he spent a lifetime chasing things he thought would bring him joy. Only to find himself at the end of his life hanging himself and alowing his friedn to find his lifeless body on the floor.



Unfortunately people think they are doing others a favor by removing themselves from the world. Its sad that they dont realize they have people who love them.



But more improtantly a God who loves them. A God who created them and reconciled them through his son. This God says you are valuable and wants a relationship with you.

Judge not, that ye be not judged.....

Following your reasoning, there would be no musicians, performers, writers, poets or visual artists. They all would have have their noses in the Bible looking for a ticket to heaven.
I never said God created his music. I said God created him. But he obvioulsy did not beleive that.

Clearly his music was not from God. His music was lacking the influence of God. There are many Christian musicians. Some of my favorites Lecrae, Andy Mineo, Thrid Day, Disciple, Zach Williams just to name a few. Being a Christain does not mean to have your nose in the bible at all times. If you were doing that you would not be following Jesus at all. Like anything thing there is a balance between knowing Gods word and being in community with other Christians yet still engaging the culture.

I would be happy to discuss any of this in private messages if you like.

Matthew 7;1-5

1"Judge not, that you be not judged. 2For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. 3Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? 4Or how can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when there is the log in your own eye? 5You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye.

Jesus is saying to not judge hypocritically or unfairly. Not to not judge at all. How could you remove the speck from your brothers eye unless you have made some sort of judgement. If we did not judge daily we would be dead.

That is a common thing people like to quote when they feel a Christian is judging them.

Everyone makes judgements. Just do not be a hypocrite while doing so and do it only from a place of love.

What's really weird is that no-one thought him depressed -- until he'd hanged himself -- mere hours after a very successful Detroit performance.

Such a drastic mood swing stinks of drugs, prescription or otherwise.

From Prince... on over... ( George Michael ) super wealthy artists are laying their hands on extremely powerful drugs... much to their peril.

A super 'high' is always followed by a super 'low.' That's biochemistry.

I'm still stuck in the 40's to 70's and really don't like what Pearl Jam and
the rest did to rock. There aren't many modern musicians that I would miss.
The last ones to die, that I can think of, are Etta James and Jeff Healey.

Then you're not listening. If you tune out after the first few bars, it's easy to dismiss.

I don't think it's what they "did to rock", it's what they did for rock.

It's progress. Rock only became what it did because of what came before it. If the progressive/alternative rock and hard/heavy rock of the 60's through the 80's had never existed, then grunge would not have existed. Look at the bands that influenced all of those musicians when they were kids.

They were the products of the geh--geh--genenerations and their parents' music.

If you want to blame a band...blame Mother Love Bone. They were a bridge. Listen to the singing style on Stardog Champion...epic.

Opie Radio Podcast - the Opie and Anthony radio show just put up their interviews with Chris when he was on their show three different times over the years.

Somewhere in the hour and thirty minutes, he spoke on this very topic...the transition in rock and what type of music he liked as inspiration and the tribute or homage to said music. It was really cool to hear that.

And the interesting part, as it relates to Plug&Lights is that he enjoyed much of the same music as you, he cherry picked the best parts and put his spin on it. Hearing him talk about it made me hear his music differently.

With the gift these artists have whether it be acting, music, painting, whatever the medium, the trade off is a often missing piece of normality that most of us share. It's unfortunate their time is often too short. I think peoples perception that a lack of a relationship with god (take your pick) is a flaw and unfortunately divisive. If you have one that's fine too, but not the only way to get through life. I don't want to be labeled as an atheist, don't choose be labeled as anything. I don't begrudge people for being religious or church going. If its a meaningful part of life for you that's a good and positive thing.

Flyingyakers comments and views are a good example of how some Christians these days are causing people to turn away from the church.


For this example, we have a Christian (flyinyakers) casting judgement, like he knows everything and has all the answers.

I am also a Christian, but this type of behavior is frustrating to see.

PM sent. You do not know me or know in what way those comments came from my mouth. If we were talking in person I do not think you would have such a issue. I care about people and I care about him and his family. However My intial comment was to show that fame, money, and all that does not bring happiness.
