Jim Carroll was one of my all-time favorites. His words had a tremendous power to them, even if his vocals were thin and scratchy. "People Who Died" is still one of the most touching songs I have ever heard.
Oh, I misunderstood you. I thought you were saying that the person who made that song was an 18-year-old Brit. But I've since discovered that you mean that the commercial was created by an 18-year-old Brit.
