Los Angeles: We visit the photo-shoot site that's become a monument to Elliott Smith

On this episode of Pop Pilgrims, Erik Adams takes a trip to the photo-shoot site that's become a monument to Elliott Smith. A decade after his death, the backdrop of Smith's album Figure 8 serves as a memorial to his life for fans who were left with a lasting impression by the beloved musician's deeply personal songs.

Like Smith's music, the wall is an understated, direct work of art. And it too can be read like a Rorschach ink blot, made out to be lines on a piece of sheet music or winding bits of circuitry—the red ones representing love, passion, or blood. Take a look at it from across the street, and it's simply a big "S"—as in "Solutions!" or "Stephon." Or, in light of the musician who brought us here, "Smith."
