Songwriter Vic Chesnutt has died at the age of 45.
Chesnutt died peacefully in hospital in Athens, Georgia on Friday afternoon. He has been in a coma for several days following an overdose of muscle relaxants, which he had to take as the result of a car accident that left him quadriplegic.
Chesnutt had attempted suicide several times before, and was remarkably candid about this aspect of his life, but it is not known whether the fatal overdose was intentional.
Rest In Peace Vic

Frankinsteins: he was a singer songwriter from Athens, Georgia, he had a pretty big cult following. On his last couple of records members of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Fugazi etc played as his backing band. He was cool. RIP
sad really, but it was surely coming after days in the hospital. :'(
sad news, I remember seeing him live with A Silver Mt. Zion, he was chipper, but also smiling through his depression...Godspeed.
This is really sad. RIP
oh snap, rest in peace man
This year has just been horrible on celebrities and musicians. RIP.
2009 has realized that it's coming to an end, and it must have been behind on its death quota.
Heres in hope that an argument won't start on this thread.

It shouldn't take four trys to kill yourself.
With a name like Chestnutt, there really isn't a better day of the year to die on than Christmas.
Yeah except his name isn't Chestnutt. Good try though champ
It sounds the same.
Not if you pronounce his name correctly. His name isn't Chestnutt.
How's it pronounced?

Oh I see
This is really sad, I hope his family isn't too heartbroken.
Paraplegics can still get muscle spasms. Plus, he could move using his fucking wheelchair, being in a wheelchair doesn't render you completely immobile. He'd attempted suicide before and wanted to die, why should anybody deny him the choice.
Knew Mr. Poopular was in here sayin that
Oh, and his music was amazing, he shall definitely be missed. A true martyr.
And you're a fucking idiot of epic proportions. Good day sir.
This sucks. A lot.
Either way, he's a goddamn pussy.
yeah because this is totallly logical. idiot
