Only what missed there was sex... Otherwise it would have completed the Rock style.

Suicide. Everyone knows that booze and prescription pills taken in large quantities, together, kills you! He wanted out. Sad.

Suicide. Everyone knows that booze and prescription pills taken in large quantities, together, kills you! And doing it alone in a hotel so as not to die in his home where loved ones would stop him and his death be gruesome to them is more proof. Typical. He wanted out. Sad.

What a waste,condolences to his family. So sad that so many have so much but are still not happy. Many are looking for the answer (Jesus Christ) but never look in the right place. It's so easy, just ask him into your life and he will come.

What a selfish way to live when you have children. I truley feel for the children he left behind as he chose drugs and booze over them.

The "likes" and "dislikes" commentary has never ever worked for me - I know it's a work-in-progress just sayin'.

It was suicide, the guy was depressed over his failed career, Pills and Vodka, he took the easy way out..Bummer, but his choice did put him in the History Books...

Accidental overdose = natural cause for celebrities. Lately, there's no difference whatsoever.

Comfort Inn? If you are going to kill yourself at least do it at the Four Seasons

I know a lot of old burnt out rockers from the eighties, and let me tell you there are alot of depressed old rockers out there. After Nirvana hit the scene the party was pretty much over, and a lot of those rockers still hate Kurt for it. I would not be surprised if it was a suicide.
