Not sure what to say?

Gorgeous man, immensely talented lyricist, brilliant band. Lucky enough to see them shine last Glastonbury. Will be playing your darkness broaching, life affirming music loudly for many years.

thanks for the songs...

I was a late arrival to Scott's music but a total fan since, and was looking forward to many more years of your musical poetry. You could write such uplifting words even in their occasional darkness. I was taken by surprise by how much reading of your passing affected me, but realized that yours was the first great new music I had heard in a long, long while. But even more so, I felt deeply saddened for your family and friends in their loss. God be with you all.

You made tiny changes to my life.. and I will make tiny changes to earth.. Thank you for being you.. Loved, kind, friendly and complicated .. But always who you are.. I'm so sorry we couldn't save you, like you saved me and others ..
Hope you are in peace now...

All my love,



It had been a goal of mine for nearly a decade to see you in concert. During that time, I had a child. She loves your music as much as I. I listened to your songs through many pivotal times in my life, they never got old, and still fill me with emotion. They were such personal lyrics, I felt like I lost a longtime friend when I heard of your passing - with lots of tears. The world lost a lyrical genius. We'll have no more poetry from Scott. I very much hope there's an afterlife in which I can...

For all the emotional words, sounds and feelings. Scott you touched my life as well as so many others. We never met but I feel I know you and understand. I'm so sorry, keep shining.

I would like to express my deepest condolences to the family for their loss of a talented man. May you find comfort and help in God during this time of mourning.

So so so very sad to hear about scott's passing I admired the music so much and a piece of it will be carried within me always. And sincerest condolences to his family and friends he was really much loved by everyone
