Almost fifteen years ago, when I first got onto the speaking circuit, I registered the JimCarroll.com domain name. Often, that drew me many visitors looking for the “other” Jim Carroll.
Sadly, that other Jim Carroll is no longer with us.
Jim Carroll, poet, punk rocker, Pulitzer Prize winner, and best known as author of the Basketball Diaries, died of a heart attack in New York at the age of 60.
When I was in my 20′s, I bought all his albums, and several of his books. I was a fan. I am sad to see him go. I did meet him in person once.
