Not much more I have to offer that Scott didn't. Beyond heartbreaking for 6 children and his family. Such a gift to many & sad we weren't all able to help him see that. Would have loved to have had him perform at the #GoGreen Concert. Gone too soon!! #weareallinthistogether

My heart breaks today, again, as I learn one of our brothers in music has taken his life. A truly gifted, talented and gentle soul who created music that brought healing, happiness, and comfort to millions all over the world, has left us. This is incredibley tragic. My thoughts and prayers go out to his wife and 6 children. The more this sinks in, the more mixed emotions and anger I feel. The criticism of those who have struggled publicly or silently from callous people, media outlets, friends, family or coworkers has to stop at each and every level. Those who have never personally suffered from addiction, alcoholism, depression or any other mental illness must realize outspoken ignorance, judgments and callous words and attitudes can hurt tremendously. The pain caused can literally push someone over the edge to self destruct! As a society there has to be change. I have a heavy heart right now and need to get these feelings out, I ask all of you to please find compassion and understanding for those who suffer. Don't judge anyone. Depression isn't a choice but stigma and ignorance is.
Silent tears hold the loudest pain.
Rest In Peace brother 🙏🏻 If you or someone you know is considering suicide, please seek help and contact the National Suicide Prevention Hotline 1-800-273-TALK (8255)
