Elliot Smith has died, of apparent suicide. I didn't even know he was sick.
For those who don't know who he was, he was a singer/songwriter who, I think, had more potential than he had success. Reading a few tributes/memoriums to/of him, apparently, he also had depression and trouble with alcohol and drugs.
His music was featured prominently in the movie Good Will Hunting.
I became a fan of his soft-sung music about a year ago. Apparently, he self-produced and pretty much played all the instruments (of which there aren't many, admittedly) on his albums.
Two of my favourite songs of his are "Say Yes" and "Somebody That I Used To Know". You could do worse than to download those two songs.
