Those Are People Who Died, Died

Jim Carroll, author of "The Basketball Diaries" and frontman for The Jim Carroll Band, died over the weekend. More so than "The Basketball Diaries," I'll remember Carroll for the punk rock classic "People Who Died" ... though it appears we may have to add a new line: "Jimmy was a rock star and not a hack/Died at 60 of a heart attack ..." or something like that.
