Vic Chesnutt was 45. This week he committed suicide. He died on Christmas Day having been in a coma for a week. He was without doubt one of the most under rated musicians on the planet. Respected by musicians far and wide he wrote songs that I could connect with. I don’t know why. I just could. I bought his album ‘The Salesman And Bernadette’ when I was at university and I was hooked. ‘Guilty By Association’ is still one of my all time favourite songs. Madonna, REM, Sparklehorse, Garbage, Lampchop…..they all loved this mans music. I loved this mans music. This really is one of the tragic losses of our generation. It will probably go largely unoticed. This would be even more tragic. So please, please, please. Take a moment and go find the man. Find his music. Here. RIP Vic. I for one will miss your music always.
