Sparklehorse singer Mark Linkous commits suicide at 47

Sparklehorse singer Mark Linkous has committed suicide at age 47 after shooting himself in the heart in front of a friend’s house in Tennesee on Saturday. According to HitFix, police responded to a call at 1:20 pm and he was later declared dead at the scene. Linkous was nearly finished with the latest Sparklehorse album, and had already wrapped a project with producer Danger Mouse and director David Lynch entitled, “Dark Night of the Soul.” This project was slated to be released this coming summer and included contributions from a variety of artists including Gruff Rhys, Jason Lytle, Julian Casablancas, Frank Black, Iggy Pop, Nina Persson, Suzanne Vega, Scott Spillane, and now dead Vic Chesnutt.

    What a pity. He had everything going for him

    RIP Mark

    I wonder if they’re going to release the album he was almost done working on, at least what was finished. I would be interested in buying that, and I hate to say it but his death would probably encourage more people to buy it

    Mark was one of my favorite artists. I’ve been through some of the same challanges he had succumbed to in his lifetime. Keep the Linkous family in your prayers, thank you mark for your work. It has helped me through some rough times.
