Another case of depression, the dude had an obvious rough upbringing in a broken home and was molested at a young age (which is all in that story) and it is plainly evident in some of Linkin Parks songs. Money and fame I guess can't take that deep seeded depression away, as was the case with Chris Cornell, and has been the case with so many others. I'll be interested to follow whatever other information comes out as to any signs that led up to this.

It is very sad to think that he did this and did it in that manner simply because of his friend Cornell doing it. He should have sought out some serious professional help to deal with it, god knows he had the money to spend for it. Fucked up, Only 41  :(

Yeah, pretty crazy story. Very unexpected as I guess all those types of deaths are. I wasn't a huge fan but loved that first record (Hybrid Theory) and Meteora. My favorites are Crawling, In the End, One Step Closer, Breaking the Habit, Somewhere I Belong and Numb. They had some good stuff, never really paid attention to their later material much, I'll have to give some of that a listen and put up a thread for them.  8)

Goldy McJohn, original Steppenwolf keyboardist died of a heart attack on August 1st, he was 72.
He was the original keyboardist and performed with the band on their string of sixties and seventies albums during their most popular and commercially successful period from 1967 to 1975. He also played with Steve Marriott in a revamped lineup of Humble Pie briefly in 1982. McJohn was one of the pioneers of electric organ/Hammond B3 usage in hard rock/heavy metal.

Glenn Campbell passed at age 81 after a long battle with Alzheimer's ( I think that's how you spell it). I'm not a country fan by any stretch, but he did a lot for the country music community and crossing over that genre in a mainstream pop sense. I did always like, like a rhinestone cowboy when I was a kid  8)

Saw Glen's farewell tour a few years back he was a great session man.Was a Beach Boy for a little while.  In late 1964, Brian Wilson had a nervous breakdown on tour with the Beach Boys, and the band called on Campbell to replace him on bass and high harmonies. "I took Brian's place and that was just ... I was in heaven then – hog heaven!" Campbell remarked.

"He fit right in," said Wilson. "His main forte is he's a great guitar player, but he's even a better singer than all the rest. He could sing higher than I could!".

He had a great career as a singer and actor(True Grit).  During a career that spanned six decades, Campbell sold over 45 million records. In 1968, one of his biggest years, he outsold the Beatles.

Sad to see this, looks like they still have dates booked, so I guess Fagan is going to continue on with Steely Dan. didn't realize that his last gigs with the band were the Vegas residency in April and then one show in May in Greenwich, Connecticut until I read it, so the band performed without him at the Classic East and Classic West shows in July, so obviously his health went down hill over the summer pretty fast.  :(

Petty definitely had some great songs. Never got to see him live, but have a few albums and the greatest hits. Liked several of his hits. Just coming off his last tour, seemed pretty healthy, 66 definitely isn't that old, pretty unexpected one there. First three records we're really good and then Full Moon Fever was a nice comeback. My favorite song though just might be Last Dance with Mary Jane.

I definitely didn't see this one coming. It's extremely bittersweet considering the band just wrapped up a five month tour. I'm honored I got to see them before he left us.

Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers are among the most important American bands in the history of popular music. The songs live on.

R.I.P. Mr. Petty.  :'(... :(

Tragically Hip front man Gord Downie passed away at 53 from his battle with brain cancer. Didn't know much about him or that band but I know he was really popular in Canada.
