music talk- ELLIOTT SMITH 3

evidence and say it somewhat points us in the right direction as pressure was high as he had many more fans and eyes on him than he never had expected. After this Elliott began to become socially withdrew and everyone could tell he was affected by the constant touring and appeared to be disappointed or bored in more and more interviews. During the recording of XO, Elliott tried to k1ll himself several times, when questioned about his suicide attempt, he told an interviewer, "Yeah, I jumped off a cliff, but let's talk about something else." In 1999 Elliott would relocate from Brookland to Los Angles and only get worse. When Elliott got to Los Angles he would begin working on his final studio record, Figure 8 and by the time of the tour people had begun to notice Smith was experimenting with hard drugs, stopped eating, and became extremely paranoid and an inconsistent sleeping schedule, staying up for days at a time due to this Elliott spent less time in the studio. Elliott tried several times to get clean and eventually did for the most part, around his 34th birthday he began to be getting better and spending more time in the studio and doing shows again. In his last show he doesn't sound as good as he used to before he started using drugs, this could very much be because of the drug use and the toll it was taking on his body, or he could just have a sore throat but it's something to question. Unfortunately, he wasn't as healthy as he looked as looked, as just before lunchtime on Tuesday, October 21, Smith argued with his girlfriend, fellow musician Jennifer Chiba, at their home in Silverlake, Los Angeles. As the row got worse, Smith threatened to commit suicide. Like most of Smith's close friends, Chiba was used to him making melodramatic threats about ending his life. After all, this was a man who, when he decided to relocate from Portland to Brooklyn in the late 1990s, bade farewell to his Oregon friends by informing them that it was likely he would never see them again because he was "probably going to kill himself". Chiba ignored him and locked herself in the bathroom. She then heard a scream. Returning to the living room, she found Smith standing with his back to her. When he turned around, she saw a kitchen knife sticking out of his chest. Smith had stabbed himself in the heart. Despite emergency surgery, he was pronounced dead 20 minutes after arriving at the hospital.
