“At first, I was disturbed by the tribute wall that sprung up in L.A. after Elliott’s death. It said things like ‘I understand your pain’ and ‘God takes the best’ and I was thinking, Well, that’s kind of bogus. But they’re not talking about Elliott Smith the person, they’re talking about the Elliott Smith that sort of floats on those records, this voice and what it means to them. In a way, he was truly this flickering flame.”
