R.I.P. ~ Mark Linkous

I am devastated to learn of the passing of Mark Linkous today. Mark is nothing less than a musical genius whom I had the pleasure to meet in SF after a Sparklehorse show in 2007. And although I could never connect the pieces to confirm our blood relationship we are both nevertheless a part of the Linkous family and, more importantly, a part of this vast cosmology of which he sang so beautifully and painfully. A gentle soul has moved on from this world...Rest in Peace.
