We will miss him indeed. Thanks for the excellently constructed words yet again, Sean.

Thanks, Sean.

The Ativan thing is a desperate deflection of blame. This happens a lot when people die (the survivors try to find reason or cause to point the finger to)

What a gifted songwriter. His singing is, was :-( ,
hypnotic!
Not to mention, his absolute gorgeousness!
Icon 4 ever!

As a city, is Seattle cursed??
The best ever artists are raised here, but they seem to die tragically!

@Cami #6 it seems like it but doubtful. Over 15,000 artists have died in NYC and almost 16,000 artists have died in Los Angeles. Given Seattle's very close knit artistic community and relative size (in comparison to other cities), it just feels like the losses are bigger and part of a bigger (sadder) story about Seattle. Doesn't make it any less painful.
