Elliott Smith: Five years gone

    Five years go by pretty quickly. It’s been that long, for example, since Eliott Smith’s died. The singer, who achieved his widest fame with the Oscar nominated "Miss Misery" from Good Will Hunting, died under mysterious circumstances in his Los Angeles apartment. Though Smith’s live-in girlfriend phoned police and the initial investigation pointed to suicide, the coroner disagreed with this finding and no final determination has ever been reached. In addition to his mysterious end, Smith left a legacy of idiosyncratic folk songs and a fanbase that sorely misses his presence. [LAist]
