It was his death that made my dad give me a talk to never do drugs. The way he said "Do you know what happened to him? He got into drugs and he died!" The way he said that scared the living s*** outta me. Looking back on his movies...he was such an incredible, promising young actor.

I always get choked up at the end of Stand By Me when you hear about his character, Chris Chambers, dying. Then his image fades away. Very eerie now, very sad.

See, I don't think a death like that is tragic. It's STUPID. He took risks with hard drugs, and look where it got him.

Stupid, stupid, stupid.

my little cousin looked just like him.

unfortunately, he committed suicide, so I'm usually uncomfortable around river phoenix conversation.

on a lighter note, a great movie with him is the one where he loses his girlfriend to a rich guy; they're in high school;....I forget what it's called.....it's his name; johnny something or something like that.

oh, and natalie merchant wrote a great song for him called "river".

It was just a huge waste. He was so talented and I agree with Cori, his death was so very, very stupid.
I love him in Stand By Me, Little Nikita and My Own Private Idaho but my favorite River movie (even if it wasn't his best) is Dog Fight with Lily Taylor.

its called " a night in the life of jimmy reardon".

before he died he was using alot of drugs with John frusciante, and he appears on one of John's solo albums with the song " height down", where he sings and plays guitar, its a weird album to listen to, cause you can actually hear the pain.

unfortunately, i clicked on the link that brought me to that photo when i was looking for pictures of the memorial on the wall outside of the viper room.

i wish i had never seen it.

the site was incredibly morbid. fascinating, though.

I went to that site last night and stayed there all night. Fascinating (and often gruesome) stuff. A lot of the write-ups were very well-done.
