The songwriter talked about these events in some interviews before and it was constantly the source of their Billboard hits.

“Neither money nor fame nor accolades nor admiration nor any of the above can make up a soul that is broken from that many years of abuse.” the psychologist said.

Although Chester was a very friendly man with deep connections with his bandmates, if a person suffers from emptiness, depression or other mental illness, it will disregard tangible realities into something darker. “There is a lack of empathy if you will. After all, you have no business being miserable, but the second thing is, the wealthy are more paradoxical to feel friendless.” She added.
