Mark Linkous is a singer, songwriter and musician, best known for his work with Sparklehorse. Linkous has released four albums so far with Sparklehorse and has also gone on to produce albums for a number of other artists. He is currently rumoured to be working on an album with Danger Mouse, with the album going by the working title of "Danger Horse".

Interesting Linkous fact; like Derek Zoolander, he is the first person in his entire family not to be a coal miner.

Linkous is known to use a mix of Epiphone Casino's and Fender Stratocaster's, as well as some other assorted Gibson and Fender models (as seen below). Amplifier wise, he favors VOX AC30's.
