The one he was specifically on was known to cause extreme paranoia and suicidal urges if over-dosed. Trying to self-medicate a high anxiety person (possibly with additional personality disorders or histrionics), especially a higher profile rock star, is asking for trouble in my opinion.

The whole "take a pill to feel better," approach is dubious, but I don't know the specifics of his life, so any further judgment other than my own opinion would be presumptuous and in poor taste. It seems, though, many artists grapple with depression and anxiety.
We are entitled to our own, wrong, opinions.

Many do. Diet and lifestyle are the most powerful tools to aid them.

In the spirit of this thread:

I will say that while I didn't care for what I heard from Soundgarden, in particular Outshined, I understood it. (I've always been picky about and sparing with Blues, for example.) I now have some appreciation for that tune, though different instrument parts during the chorus would make a more interesting experience for me. I got back into singing in the last ten-ish years, and in recent time oftenly sing to myself, so here's an intentful a capella of the first verse and chorus of Outshined:

Unfortunately, his good friend Chester of Linkin Park took his own life on what would have been Chris Cornell's 53rd birthday. :wall:
