RIP, Mark Linkous

You will be greatly missed.  When I heard the news I was shocked.  But at the same time, not really.  It's not like you had never tried to kill yourself before.


I just wish you didn't have to go.  You single-handedly revived my love of music.  You inspired and influenced so many artists and fans alike.  You were one of a kind.


I am glad that I got to see you play a show before you died.  I am glad that I was able to feel giddy when you brushed by me on the way to the bathroom.  And I am glad that Dave was able to share in that washroom experience with you.

RIP Mark.  You will live on in people's ears and hearts.
