Kristin Hersh broke the news of his OD and (then-)comatose state via her Twitter account (twitter.com), having played with him on tour. Originally posted by Kristin Hersh no calls in the night-well, only to talk about how much we love vic-and no news is good news...if we lose him i'll have lost my equilibrium yeah, i can tell you what i know, but no one knows much: another suicide attempt, looks bad, coma--if he survives, there may be brain damage this time, it's real scary: *this* time, he left a note, *this* time, he asked them to call me This wasn't the first suicide attempt for Chestnutt, who was rendered a paraplegic 16 years ago after a car accident.

That's a damn shame, but of course not 100% unexpected. One of the best live shows I ever saw was Vic touring as part of the Undertow Orchestra with Will Johnson, Dave Bazan, and Mark Eitzel. 2007 and 2008 W-League Fantasy Football champion!
Honestly, I was this close to taking a break from the show for the Fall quarter, so I really appreciate the kind words. The fact that you've actually purchased music based on the playlist is really great to hear. This was very nice of you to say.
