About Chris Cornell I can say really only one thing – I was jealous of his range as a singer and musician. I sing and play guitar, and learned the song Sunshower recently, as it is one of my favorite songs. It is out of my vocal range, but I manage it on the guitar just fine as it really isn’t a difficult song to play.
I view much of my art as catharsis – much of it I never show to anyone. They are ideas to be expressed, examined and then put away. But this was different. Someone very close to me committed suicide last year, someone neither I or anyone closer had any idea that this was a possibility in his mind. It bothered me tremendously that as I close as I was I had failed to hear, to see, to know and to help before it was too late.
With the help of Dr. Ali Mattu, a psychologist who has a terrific youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClIZqOLqUCro7bKztUjYCNA, I’d like to offer the following resources.
