Cory Monteith's last song with band Bonnie Dune has hit the Internet and man, does it make us miss this guy even more.
"Maybe Tonight," the last song Cory Monteith recorded with Bonnie Dune, is one of 6 songs on the band's EP Miramar featuring the late actor and musician.
Justin Wilczynski, Bonnie Dune's lead vocalist, says it was Monteith who pressed to get the band back together shortly before his passing.
“We finished these particular six songs quite a while ago,” the singer said.
“Some things happened where Cory needed to take a break, and we realized that he was struggling and that he was having a hard time, so we took a bit of a hiatus from the writing and recording process.”
The 6-song album, Wilczynski says, is a celebration of Cory's life. "Maybe Tonight" is an upbeat pop number which Cory was able to hear and enjoy before he died.
It's a celebration of life, indeed, full of hope. It makes Monteith's death that much more sad because of the promise he possessed.
Monteith's shocking death last summer to a lethal mix of heroin and alcohol left a void in the world of Glee and in the hearts of his many fans. Philip Seymour Hoffman's death has reopened those wounds for many since the circumstances surrounding their deaths are so similiar.
Both Hoffman and Monteith spent time in rehab and still struggled to stay clean, eventually giving in to the drug addiction that would take their lives.
They join the ranks of many celebrities who succumbed to addiction and left us far too soon.
