"When it comes to someone like Chris Cornell or Chester, you know-depression is a disease", says Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, who lost his Nirvana bandmate Kurt Cobain to suicide in 1994.

"What a devastating way to have my eyes opened to how many lives around me, and all of us, have been touched by such tragedy", he wrote.

He admitted: "I cannot deny the pain of this loss". I just always immediately think of their families and bandmates.

"Chris was such a beautiful guy", he continued. "I replay them all [too] often, starting with our childhood and reliving the glory that was Seattle in the '90s", he added.

Apuramento Mundial: Coreia do Sul e Arábia Saudita garantem vaga
Essas duas selecções somam-se à anfitriã Rússia, Brasil, México, Irão, Japão e Bélgica, que já haviam garantido vaga no torneio. Concorrente direta pela vaga, a Austrália chegou a ganhar da Tailândia por 2 a 1, alcançando os mesmos 19 pontos.

Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins chimed in during the interview to point out that problems like depression don't discriminate based on success, and someone can seem like they have it all together but really be suffering. But there are a lot of people that get through, that deal, and so, I guess, basically [we] are trying to reach out to them and also to be an example of 'you can walk through that.' Because a lot of people were there for us when we walked though our thing. Chris Cornell hanged himself in a Detroit hotel room on May 18. I barely knew him, a little bit, but what I did know, he was super cool. "It still doesn't seem real", Alice in Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell told talk show host Rich Eisen, about his friends Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington.

Mental health awareness has been pushed to the fore of many artists' minds after both Bennington and Cornell were tragically lost to suicide this year. Bennington, who performed "Hallelujah" at his funeral, also penned an open letter to his friend.

He also noted that while social media has at times helped his healing, he's also seen the dark underbelly in the wake of his brother's death thanks to conspiracy theorists who "continually attempt to blur the facts". Bennington was heartbroken and his group paid tribute to Cornell by performing "One More Light", which is a Linkin Park song about suicide.
