RIP Jim Carroll
Writer/musician Jim Carroll passed away Friday due to an apparent heart attack. He was 59 years old.
Most know Carroll as the man who wrote the book The Basketball Diaries, which was later turned into a shit film starring Leonardo DiCrappyo. But like every book-turned-movie, Carroll's tale was much better than Hollywood's. But in my humble opinion, 1987's Forced Entries was even better.
Carroll was a highly-respected poet and even dabbled in music. Maybe you remember this tune?
