    :( :cry:

    I can't write a better obituary for him than the one he wrote himself. Farewell to one of the originals.

    I don't know much about Jim although I do know someone who's a fan.

    I'm glad someone is acknowledging his death here. For Velvet Underground fans, Carroll is the voice on the "Live At Max's Kansas City" album asking for a double Pernod and a Tuinal. John Leland, in Hip: The History, cites his (perhaps unintended) cameo as a moment that "still epitomizes cool." Beyond that and his remarkable life's work, his contributions to the classic oral biography of punk, Please Kill Me, are timeless. RIP.

    I went to one of his readings...a while ago...in a rundown bar. There were only ten or so other people there, but it was amazing.

    R.I.P.
