Former Foo Fighters Guitarist Calls Chris Cornell Selfish

posted by Cole - 

While everyone has a right to their opinion, it's probably not wise to post what could be seen as an "unpopular opinion" on social media. Even when deleted, things have a way of sticking around.

This is exactly what happened with former Foo Fighters guitarist Franz Stahl.

Stahl was in the band in the late 90's before Chris Shiflett took over in '99. 

Stahl recently took to his social media posting a statement in which he called Chris Cornell selfish for taking his life. 

Warning there's strong language in the statement:

"Wow…I find it very sad as a father to see all these sad eulogies for your fallen kept rockstars where the real sadness is what so selfishly was left behind…his children. They are forever now without a father…a pillar of love…safety…strength…guidance.

"You wanna off yourself cause your incapacitated or brain dead sh*tting yourself and a burden to everyone so be it. But just think of your kids and how f**ked it all will be now.

"Now I loved Soundgarden…but Audiosoave was f**king lamesville…but does all that really matter to his kids? They just wanted to see your face when you got home…to hear your voice..to feel your hugs…to barrow the f**king car to go to In and Out Burger. Thanks Dad…"

Yikes. While he has since deleted the post, it was just a little too late. I don't think this should gain Stahl too many new fans.
