R.I.P Mark Linkous
Sparklehorse is an amazing band that no one has ever heard of. Even though The Flaming Lips and Radiohead worshipped Mark and his songs, success never found him. Sadly, over the weekend, Mark shot himself in the heart and ended his life. Depression is a killer(no pun intended), and people who aren't afflicted with it, don't know just how bad it can be. Now we have lost Vic Chestnutt and Mark Linkous, within months of each other. Both of them kindred spirits, bot of them wrote beautiful songs, that not many people ever bothered listening to. I hope you are at peace finally, Mark.
