    Just got the news from my brother. I’m shocked. I been in love with his music ever since I heard ‘Say Yes’ for the first time. Strange feeling when somebody dies who you only know through his music.
    Elliott is definetly my favourite artist together with J. He could express emotion in a song in a way no other musician could.

    I first heard of him in 1994 or 95;it was the song Needle In The Hay that caught my ear.He did alot of guest appearences too with Birddog(Kentucky band;Elliot helped the main guy out alot in getting started in the music biz),The Spinanes(the song Madding),and Guided By Voices(Ellliot played piano on the song How`s My Drinkin).
    RIP Elliot :(

    It is very difficult to grasp why so many musician-artists end up this way–but sometimes not so… :( :cry:

    Damn, that’s sad. :( Over the past year, I’ve listened more to Elliott Smith than to anyone else. I think he was a brilliant singer and songwriter. His music helped me through some tough moments, too. I’ll miss him.

    :( ….sad, sad day. i can’t say i was a huge fan, but this is a tragic loss to the music community in general…..my condolences to his family and friends. saw him play a few years ago, and was rather unimpressed with his set, but i’m glad i had the chance to see him at all… R.I.P

    Yeah, "Say Yes" is one of the most beautiful songs ever!
    I read somewhere that he had a singular stab wound in the chest. That sounds horrible. Yahoo! News also reported that his "live-in girlfriend" who found him… Incredibly sad, adds to the already looming winter-depression ; I guess my friend Willyum put it as good as anything: "I’m fucking crying". R.I.P.

    "and i wanted her to tell me that she would never wake me…"
