9780306814471: Elliott Smith and the Big Nothing
From the Publisher:

Best known for his Oscar-nominated song "Miss Misery" from the Good Will Hunting soundtrack, Elliott Smith was catapulted to the status of indie rock star after performing at the 1997 Academy Awards. Some of his albums, XO and Either/Or among them, would become '90s classics, helping to define an understated aesthetic that owed as much to the melodic emphasis of The Beatles as it did to punk. In the afterglow of the success of "Miss Misery," Smith's fame grew--alongside his struggles with depression and substance abuse. First relocating to Brooklyn, and then finally to L.A., he fell into a downward spiral evident to friends and fans alike, even as he continued to write such beautifully realized songs as "Waltz #2" (XO). Drawing on new interviews with those who knew and loved Smith, and focusing on the crucial interplay between Smith's life and music, Ben Nugent compellingly and sympathetically portrays an enormously gifted, yet troubled, artist.

Descripción Da Capo Press, 2005. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: It is rare for a recording artist to move his fans so deeply that the news of his death sparks instant tribute concerts worldwide. Elliott Smith was such an artist. On October 21st 2003, he was found dead in his apartment from two stab wounds to the heart. But before his tragic death - which is still under investigation - came the solitary beauty of Smith's music. Best-known for his heartrending song "Miss Misery" from the Oscar-nominated "Good Will Hunting" soundtrack, Elliott Smith was catapulted to the status of indie icon after performing at the 1998 Oscars. Sandwiched between Celine Dion and Trisha Yearwood and wearing an unlikely white tuxedo, he looked miserable - but many who witnessed his surreally beautiful performance thought he put Dion's "My Heart Must Go On" to shame. His albums have since sold over half a million copies, with many crediting his melody-based rock for the success of artists from Belle & Sebastian to the Flaming Lips. Featuring never-before-published interviews with those that knew and loved Smith, this book takes us from his childhood in rural Amherst, Massachusetts, to his life - and eventual death - 3,000 miles away in Los Angeles. Focusing on the crucial interplay between Smith's life and music, and establishing his place in America's musical canon as one who helped to usher in today's garage-rock revival, this is a groundbreaking biography on "an amazing singer and songwriter" (Moby).
