“You were just a shooting star”

According to a post at his official site, Elliott Smith is dead by his own hand at 34. The loss is impossible to quantify. Elliott had so much talent, so much ability to touch people through his songs, that it makes it all the more painful that he had to go so young, in stereotypical tormented rock star fashion.

I knew it would happen; I was hoping against hope that it wouldn’t. Rest in peace, Elliott.
