After Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington passed away this year, a numb er of musicians and psychiatric professionals have spoken out about the importance of paying attention to your personal mental health. Dave Grohl from the Foo Fighters also recently spoke out to the Alternative Press about the importance of mental health awareness as well.
Grohl had, of course, experienced losing a musician friend to depression and addiction with Kurt Cobain. “When it comes to someone like Chris Cornell or Chester, depression is a disease. Everybody kind of goes through it their own way…the hardest part is when you lose a friend; I just always immediately think of their families and bandmates.”
Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins added, “It just goes to show you that it doesn’ t matter what’s in your bank account or how many hits are on your YouTube page. All that kind of crap goes out the window if you’re not feeling right. If it looks like someone is down, way down, check on them.”
Grohl adds that “Mental health and depression is something that people should really take seriously. There’s a stigma attached to it that’s unfortunate.”
