Former FOO FIGHTERS guitarist Franz Stahl posted his reaction to Chris Cornell’s on Facebook:
“Wow…I find it very sad as a father to see all these sad eulogies for your fallen kept rockstars where the real sadness is what so selfishly was left behind…his children. They are forever now without a father…a pillar of love…safety…strength…guidance.
You wanna off yourself cause your incapacitated or brain dead sh*tting yourself and a burden to everyone so be it. But just think of your kids and how f*cked it all will be now.
Now I loved SOUNDGARDEN…but AUDIOSLAVE was f*cking lamesville…but does all that really matter to his kids? They just wanted to see your face when you got home…to hear your voice..to feel your hugs…to barrow the f*cking car to go to In and Out Burger. Thanks Dad…”
On Thursday afternoon, the Wayne County Medical Examiner’s Office announced Cornell‘s cause of death “has been determined as suicide by hanging.” But, it added, “A full autopsy report has not yet been completed.”
