I just wanted to say, I've met Elliott, back in 2011. While yes, he was doing drug, the way he acted was no different than someone heavily addicted. BUT he knew he had nothing to gain from me and still treated me like a human and friend. He'd never do drugs in front of me, because he knew my dad was also an addict and that I hated being around that. I wouldn't give him rides and I would sometimes be a bitch, and he still kept me around and wouldn't bug me for anything. Just like any human would, you show them that they can use you and they'd use you.
He's a good guy, I just guess you have to know how to handle a drug addict in order to see that. I hope he gets better, because his voice was heavenly.
