    Great stuff, Sparklehorse. Favorite song: Happy Man (Memphis Version) off the Distorted Ghost EP. Love the kick-ass version of that song. "I woke up in a horse's stomach one foggy morning/he eyes were crazy, and he smashed into the cemetery gates"

    Read an article (Rolling Stone?) that said he passed out after a show in his hotel (Vividixiesat.. era), and was found lying on the floor, legs bent at the knee. They went to revive him, and straightened his legs out.

    That sent all the blood (and valium (and god knows what else)) running back up into his heart and caused a heart attack/seizure event. He was in wheelchair for months afterward. I wonder if he would have overdosed if his heart has access to all that blood in his legs at the time.

    I'm in Virginia. We hold him as one of our own, and those of us know know his music miss him.
