Damn, singer/songwriter Elliott Smith is dead at 34. It is at this moment called by the LA County coroner’s office an apparent suicide.
That’s a damn shame. His harrowing song of leading the heroin lifestyle “Needle in the Hay” is a song I have listened to over and over. When it was used in The Royal Tennenbaums as the soundtrack to a suicide, I thought it was eerily appropriate. How sad that Smith would later act that out. Damn.
