Jim Carroll (1949-2009)

Anyone remember that movie The Basketball Diaries? In the film, Leonardo DiCaprio plays a NYC teenager living a dual existence as a promising basketball player and a troubled heroin addict. Well, that movie was based on an autobiographical book by spoken word artist and musician Jim Carroll.

Sadly, Mr. Carroll died a few months back at the age of 60. The official press release said that he died of a heart attack while sitting at his desk. They said he was writing, but I'm guessing it had something to do with internet porn. I want to know why it took me three months to find out. Why didn't I hear about this on the Joy Behar Show?
