Mark Linkous of Sparklehorse takes his own life

Post by Bartleby » Tue Mar 09, 2010 2:41 am

It was with shock and sadness that I read that Mark Linkous has taken his own life. ... -own-life/

People will inevitably make comparisons with the recently deceased Vic Chesnutt.

I just listened to the second Sparklehorse album "Good Morning Spider" this evening and thought how great it was. Songs such as "Hundreds of Sparrows" on GMS or "Saturday" on the earlier album "Vivadixiesubmarinetransmissionplot" are beautiful and haunting. A lot of people are going to miss him.
Those who earnestly are lost
Are lost and lost again
