Vic Chesnutt, a poor tormented soul, who took his own life, but touched many with his music.

(From Wiki) James Victor “Vic” Chesnutt (November 12, 1964 – December 25, 2009) was an American singer-songwriter from Athens, Georgia. His first album, Little, was released in 1990, but his breakthrough to commercial success didn’t come until 1996 with the release of Sweet Relief II: Gravity of the Situation, a tribute album of mainstream artists covering his songs.[1]

Chesnutt released seventeen albums during his career, including two produced by Michael Stipe, and a 1996 release on Capitol Records. His musical style is described as a “skewed, refracted version of Americana that is haunting, funny, poignant, and occasionally mystical, usually all at once”.[2]

Injuries from a 1983 car accident left him partially paralyzed; he used a wheelchair and had limited use of his hands.
