Chris Cornell's Death Spotlights Drug Dangers Says Rock Legend 2017 In Review

Chris Cornell's Death Spotlights Drug Dangers Says Rock Legend was a top 17 story of June 2017: Chris Cornell's death was a terrible and unnecessary loss says music icon Billy Sheehan, who hopes that the death of the Soundgarden frontman will motivate people to do something about prescription drugs that have dangerous side effects.
