Vic Chestnutt Dies on Christmas


I read that Vic Chestnutt died on Christmas of a drug overdose. He was 45.  Honestly, I wasn’t too familiar with his work, but I liked what I heard.

Chesnutt had been in a wheelchair since the age of 18, when he was injured in a car accident.

Many considered 2009 a phenomenal and creative year for Chesnutt, who released two albums this year. At The Cut featured collaborations with members of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, and Skitter On Take-Off was a minimal folk release with bouts of sheer brilliance. Musicians and music fans alike have been devastated by the loss of one of the world’s most stunning musicians. -Fence Post
