Vic Chesnutt Dies

2009-12-26 by Dr Dave De Sylvia STAFF | 31 Comments
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.

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

2009 has realized that it's coming to an end, and it must have been behind on its death quota.

RIP.

With a name like Chestnutt, there really isn't a better day of the year to die on than Christmas.

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.
