A heroic story of a man overcoming incredible odds to create an amazing body of music, inside a broken body, ended Christmas Day when Vic Chestnutt committed suicide. His songs are strange, beautiful and haunting. Anyone who ever saw him perform live understands the eerie magnificence of his songs.
It's unfortunate that our vaunted health care system was failing him in a time of great need. A page to help his family pay for medical bills has been set up for donations.
