Song of the Day – Monday 3/8/2010 Sparklehorse March 8, 2010

Today’s SOTD is in honor of Mark Linkous, lead singer of Sparklehorse who committed suicide on Saturday 3/6/2010.   Linkous had also worked as a record producer and had collaborated with Nina Persson of The Cardigans, Daniel Johnston, Danger Mouse, and David Lynch.  This was not Linkous’s first brush with death, in 1996 Linkous almost died after taking a dangerous mix of valium and anti-depressants.  Linkous was 47 when he passed.  On the Sparklehorse website the Linkous family posted: “It is with great sadness that we share the news that our dear friend and family member, Mark Linkous, took his own life today. We are thankful for his time with us and will hold him forever in our hearts. May his journey be peaceful, happy and free. There’s a heaven and there’s a star for you.” – March 6, 2010
