    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.
