If there is anything positive to come out of the tragic loss of Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington, maybe it’s that people will start talking more about depression and mental health. Foo Fighter’s Dave Grohl recently opened up about his feelings on the loss of the 2 singers. Grohl, of course, felt the loss of suicide when Nirvana band mate Kurt Cobain died in 1994.
