Chris Cornell was born on this day 55 years ago. He left us too soon.

Chester Bennington took his own life on this date 2 years ago. He also left us too soon.

However, they left us a lasting legacy of music. Whenever you miss them just listen to any one of the bands they were in. Whether it’s Soundgarden, Audioslave, Linkin Park, Dead By Sunrise, or any of their collaboration or solo work. Then it’s like they never left.

Because both of them took their own lives remember if you need help, get it. Don’t think of mental illness as something that needs to be cloistered away and forgotten about. There are others out there going through the same things. Get the help you need.

They may be gone but, they will never be forgotten!
