When Vic Chesnutt died I had only been aware of him and his music for less than a year, but I still sobbed like a goddamn baby when he passed. Mitch Mitchell's death also made me cry. Syd Barrett too.

These guys' passing will make me sad:
Dylan Carlson
Daniel Johnston
John Frusciante
Isaac Brock
John Darnielle

Not just because of the awesome music they made, but because of the tragic lives they led which seeped into their work. I think a lot of artists don't get enough credit for baring their souls to us, especially after they've experienced so much hurt. It's a tremendous task to put yourself out there and make something that emotionally unites every person in the room.
