Here’s a lame phone video I took of A Winged Victory For The Sullen performing “Steep Hills Of Vicodin Tears” at Sixth & I in Washington D.C. in March 2014.
Elliott Smith passed away ten years ago today. It goes without saying how much his presence is missed. We are lucky to have so much of his wonderful music to fill the void. Once-in-a-generation talent cannot be replaced or replicated. There is no “next Elliott Smith.” If you have a moment today, put on an Elliott Smith record. If you’ve never been exposed to Smith’s music, you can do a lot worse than starting here:
Thank you Elliott. Your music has left an unforgettable impression on me.
