Brad — who recently insisted in an interview, "I'm not suicidal" — was longtime friends with rocker Chris Cornell
, who was found hanged
in his Detroit hotel room after a final show
with his band Soundgarden. Brad and Chris had socialized together with their children, and they regularly attended each other's concerts and premieres. Brad was also close to studio executive Brad Grey
, who died just days before Chris after a private battle with cancer.
