This disc is a tough listen. If you think "Flirted with you all my life" was tough to listen to before today......Chesnutt was quoted as saying that this was his "Screw you, death" song. The song that was his final break up with the suicide attempts of the past. If only that were the case.
Chesnutt was a talented, tormented man. With his death, he becomes a national symbol of the health care crisis. In a recent interview printed in the LA TImes he contemplated the challenges he faced as a wheelchair-using paraplegic with inadequate health insurance and mounting medical bills.
"I'm not too eloquent talking about these things," Chesnutt told The Times earlier this month. "I was making payments, but I can't anymore and I really have no idea what I'm going to do. It seems absurd they can charge this much. When I think about all this, it gets me so furious. I could die tomorrow because of other operations I need that I can't afford."
Unfortunately, Chesnutt's "tomorrow" came on Christmas Day. Death came from intentional overdose of muscle relaxants.
God rest your body and soul Vic Chesnutt. May you find peace at last. (Gengler)
