R.I.P. Jim Carroll
Jim Carroll, author of The Basketball Diaries, is dead at 60 of a heart attack.
Years and years ago, when Culturebot first moved to NYC we met Jim Carroll. He saw us perform at a spoken word show and we got to talking. He was super nice and really mild mannered, considering the life he’d led.
