Published May 22, 2017Chris Cornell's sudden and unexpected death last week was quickly ruled a suicide. And while tributes have been pouring in for the fallen Soundgarden vocalist, Franz Stahl — a one-time member of Scream and Foo Fighters — stated Cornell "selfishly" took his own life.
As Alternative Nation reports, Stahl recently made a Facebook post sharing his thoughts about Cornell's death. It's since been deleted, but not before it was transcribed by the folks over at Alternative Nation.
Stahl's post reportedly read as follows:
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 shitting yourself and a burden to everyone so be it. But just think of your kids and how fucked it all will be now. Now I loved Soundgarden…but Audiosoave was fucking 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 fucking car to go to In and Out Burger. Thanks Dad…
As previously reported, Stahl made headlines in 2015 when he emerged to discuss how he never got over being booted from the Foo Fighters in 1999 via a conference call.
Cornell died at the age of 52 on May 17, with a medical examiner ruling that he took his own life by hanging. Cornell's family has since questioned that ruling.
