B.W.'s PLAYLIST/ KHSU-FM, 90.5/ SAT., 26 DEC. 2009

Singer/songwriter Vic Chesnutt, photographed here by Mary Ellen Mark in 1996, died yesterday, xmas day, at the age of 45, due to a coma induced by an overdose of muscle relaxers. Tragic and deeply sad. Details still withheld or fuzzy, but according to a The New York Times article, Chesnutt was facing a significant debt due to medical costs. A lack of a National Health Plan (i.e. "single payer") in this country is killing our artists. Fortunately, Mr. Chesnutt has left a treasure trove of great art.
