I think I'm the right age to be a super fan. Anyone else?

I know really sad, I don't understand it but I've never been in a dark place to contemplate it.

I heard a interview with him this morning and awhile back a close friend of his committed suicide and he seemed baffled by it.

It's one of those unfortunate things that seems to come with being famous: the increased risk of drug addiction, depression and suicide.  I can't imagine how it must be to constantly be surrounded with temptation like that, and not slip at some point.  It's a slippery slope after that.

Aye been a fan since I was a kid! Every album/songs on my NAS. It's a real shame and a waste. Listening to there latest album, you realise just how depressing their latest songs are. Maybe a sign that no one noticed. RIP Chester! A great guy, a great artist and one that will be missed.

It is quite amazing the amount of exceptional artists that have taken their own lives or died young over the last 50 years , the list is pretty long . RIP Chester .
