Patti Smith and Jim Carroll

Artist Jim Carroll died on Friday of a heart attack at his home in Manhattan. He was 60 years old.

Carroll was known for his poetry and music. Leonardo DiCaprio portrayed a young Carroll in The Basketball Diaries which was adapted to screen from the book written by Jim Carroll.

“That, I realized, is the great beauty of dreams: the devil may inevitably find a way to jerk you off, but you can always wake up before he makes you cum.” – Jim Carroll
