Chester joins the long line of musicians and vocalists of great bands who have unfathomably found themselves utterly disenchanted from life, accompanied by unhealthy trepidation, depression and drug addiction.
Would never understand what drives such fine artists towards such a fatal precipice. Tells us somewhat about the dark face of the entertainment industry, which somehow fails to emancipate its own towards a spiritually secure place.
Ironic how he did not emulate his own song ‘Iridescent’ and let it go when he felt cold and lost in desperation. All this ballad about hope in the midst of chaos and sadness didn’t stop himself from giving up, and that’s overwhelmingly sad.
RIP as in the end, it doesn’t even matter. 😦
