There's just no way of know what motivates suicide - each case is totally unique. If anyone here ever gets that depressed, please call for help ASAP, and know you are NOT alone in whatever struggle you have.

I never could understand suicide. There must be a battle in ones mind that causes this. It is very cruel to friends and loved ones. Brad Delp seemed very happy the day before he took his life. Bill Bonham just returned from a cruise to Mexico. He said "it was bloody fun". Things always change and get better. It's always dark before the Dawn. Less than a month after Bill died, Glen Hughes wanted him to play KB on a project. Then someone from Terry Reids band was trying to get in touch with him. Man,, if he/they only could have held out a little longer

Not to get into a discussion on suicide, living the aftermath and all but I think the actual act is a "in the moment kind of thing". Obviously he had given it thought, for God knows how little no (prophetic huh) and probably thought of many ways to end it but then some switch turned and that was that... he ended it.

Sad for all his loved ones... it's a very cruel act. Unfortunately they will be dealing with it for the rest of their lives.

Damn the demons and damn the people that listen to them... if they could only see what it does to those left behind.

when the the last song you ever play in your life is a cover of "in my time of dying,"  i'd say so.  as someone who has been on that ledge several times and never jumped, and sadly had band members who did.... (thank you therapy ....yes talk to people, they will listen/help), the first thing that springs to mind is his wife/childeren.  suicide is incredibly selfish.  not matter how much pain you are in, if there are others who care for you, they will feel the fallout of your choice forever...

I can never really understand the parade of people who make judgements about suicide being "selfish", when the person is obviously in a severe borderline mental state if they would do that... and not thinking in what we would call a "sane" way.

That reaction always seems more like someone is making it about themselves and their own proclamations, with little personal knowledge about whatever that person was living through. Which is in fact, selfish.

I don't mean this as an attack at Larry or d gauss. This is just a terribly unfortunate scenario. Sharing a different perspective.

I don't remember where I saw it but someone somewhere* said, paraphrased, that suicide is an inherently unnatural act.  Which seems to imply that something must really be 'bending' the person to cause it.

I've given this a lot of thought, 14 years now. I live with suicide everyday and the thought of committing suicide everyday, multiple times a day. It's part of the aftermath I was talking about.

I can reason and understand why my dad committed suicide but it was the most selfish act he ever did. It relieved his demons in one second and gave me ones that would haunt me and my family members the rest of out lives. I love my father more than anything, I also now hate him as much. Just living with that is torture enough. Torture!

Suicide is the most cruel act you could ever to do the people you love. This is what keeps me alive. I need to think about my loved ones and what it would do to them when these thoughts come flooding in. No self worth, no hope, no joy, no faith, no future... these are what run though your head. All this damaged cause by one selfish act.

Think that I'm selfish, well I'm not... everyday I fight not to be selfish.

Words hurt, choose them wisely. I'll be giving your words thought when the demons come a calling later today and I expect, the rest of my life.

God fucking bless us everyone!
