R.I.P. Sparklehorse's Mark Linkous

I write today with great sorrow. According to a Rolling Stone report, Mark Linkous of Sparklehorse has committed suicide. His family have released a statement reading, "It is with great sadness that we share the news that our dear friend and family member, Mark Linkous, took his own life today. We are thankful for his time with us and will hold him forever in our hearts. May his journey be peaceful, happy and free. There's a heaven and there’s a star for you."

Details of his death have not yet been released.

This tragic news comes just days after it was confirmed that Dark Night Of The Soul, a project featuring Sparklehorse, Danger Mouse and film director David Lynch, was finally to be released following a long, bitter dispute between Danger Mouse and EMI.

My thoughts and best wishes are with the friends and family of Mark Linkous at this difficult time.
