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.

Cornell's death was officially ruled a suicide and the singer's widow believes that an anti-anxiety drug, which has a rare side effect of suicidal thoughts, played a part in his death.

Sheehan was asked about his reaction to Cornell's death during an interview with Metal Wani and he responded, "I was quite angry about it, 'cause I do believe, and this is just one man's opinion, based on what I've seen in media… I believe his wife bringing this up that the pharmaceutical situation in the world is so dreadful and so many people are dying because they mistakenly take two, or they forget they took one and they take another one, or they forget to take it and they go into withdrawals."
