I just saw a Newsweek article that said "After Chris Cornell's death, fans are praying desperately to keep Eddie Vedder safe."
What the fuck.
Like the worst part of this is that grunge is in jeopardy? That there might be a shortage of 40-something alt rock frontmen from the '90s? That seems really fucked up to me. I mean, a man killed himself. Musician or not, that sucks for reasons that have nothing to do with the preservation of an era of rock music.
Not that I want any harm to come to Eddie Vedder, but the safety of alt-rock dudes is far from the takeaway here.
What the hell is wrong with people?
