Goddammit.  

Wednesday my sister called me.  She seemed distraught and I was beginning to worry, but when she said "Josh, Elliott Smith committed suicide yesterday", I just laughed.  I laughed because there were so many rumors swirling around about Smith and his numerous addictions and suicide attempts, and it wasn't the first time I'd heard this.  I assured her it wasn't true and we ended up laughing about it together.  Smith's music had such a profound impact on me throughout my teenage years, the thought of him dying was hard to take.  But I was sure it wasn't true.  Then I opened the newspaper thursday morning and realized that it was true.  And I cried.  

More than any other artist, I felt a kinship with the quiet yet somehow hopeful desperation of his music. It helped me get through broken relationships, my parents' divorce, my own fear of the future, and the paralyzing hold that anxiety and depression frequently had on me.  It was the best kind of therapy, and I don't know what I would've done without it.

He will be missed.

Ya, believe it or not GDIDM was a huge Elliot Smith fan. I bought the Goodwill hunting soundtrack hoping to steal one of the ballads on it when i came across "Say yes," I love that song. And i grew to love all other Elliot Smith songs. When i was away in Cypruss for a month it's all I'd listen to. One of the biggest regrets i have/had in my life was not going to an Elliot Smith concert in hollywood with my sister a year or two ago...I remember saying "I'll catch it next time."

same here...my next time just happen to be this coming november...he had become probably one of the best songwriters of this generation...Bright Eyes is the only one I think I can think of right now that might even come close...

Why the hell did he have to kill himself?
I heard he was pretty high at the time, but I loved his music.  :(
It's just so sad, if he only had known how awesome he was.

Do you think the fact that people like John Mayer are suddenly very popular playing the same type of music, while he is much better (everyone must agree) but not given the same type of attention.

its not the same type of music.  AT ALL.  

and no, i dont.  he was uncomfortable with success.  i doubt he was envious of john mayer.

I would classify them in the same genre.  I love Elliott Smith, and gave Room for Squares one listen and was not impressed.

well it depends on what genre you are talking about, if its as wide as "singers with guitars" then i guess so.  but i really dont see them as part of the same thing at all.

singers with acoustic guitars
but I do see your point, and it likely did not effect him.
