Song(s) of the Day: Vic Chesnutt

Posted Dec 28 2009 8:50am

I’m very sad this week because Vic Chesnutt, an amazing musician who faced down demonic depression for years, took his own life — finally. He’d tried it several times, and in fact wrote about his romance with suicide in a song called “Flirted With It All My Life.” Though he had new albums out and was supposedly looking forward, when I heard his recent interview with Terry Gross, I had an awful thought: “This man will die by his own hand.” I just didn’t expect it to be so soon. He was such an amazing poet and thinker and dreamer and grouch.
