Maybe he's touring at 52 for the fans, but I hope he wasn't touring to keep paying off a terminal debt, or some kind of long-running state-enforced debt - alimony or child support. His legal battles with his ex-wife seemed to have destroyed him in one way or another.
Not sure where he got married, but if he was duped into getting married in California, those 14 years with Susan Silver probably turned into a life sentence for him after the divorce.
Great singer though. Soundgarden was my fav.
