Jim Carroll, singer of “People Who Died,” Died
Jim Carroll, the punk poet who wrote “The Basketball Diaries” and whose classic 1980 album, Catholic Boy, featured the death-roll anthem “People Who Died,” um… died on Friday at his home in Manhattan. He was 60.
Plenty of bloggers will undoubtedly say things like “He looked like 65 when he died, he was a friend of mine,” but since StaticBlog didn’t know him, this blog shall refrain. Sort of.
