King County Website III

October 2, 2007

He killed himself when I was in school in Australia.

His death drove home the fact that people all over the world don’t just like rock and roll, they invest themselves in it. There were more than a few people who were visibly saddened by his death. Some of them actually felt it.

(This point was also driven home by a 16-yr street musician playing John Mellencamp’s, “Jack and Diane”, a spontaneous group sing-along of a U2 song at a Hostel on Magnetic Island and fortunately/unfortunately at Karaoke Night at the local pub.)

As a footnote, his suicide also marks my introduction to the web. I had used message boards for class before but I hadn’t surfed for anything outside of school stuff. Searching for any information on his death, in a dingy computer lab in a foreign country, I lost my first afternoon to the internet. Innocence lost.
