Vic Chesnutt, whose darkly comic songs about mortality, vulnerability and life’s simple joys made him a favorite of critics and fellow musicians, died Friday in a hospital in Athens, Ga., a family spokesman said. He was 45 and lived in Athens.

He had been in a coma after taking an overdose of muscle relaxants earlier this week, said the spokesman, Jem Cohen.


He wrote moving stuff, but I admit I had trouble listening to a lot of it all at once.

I loved his songs, dark though they often were. Very sad to learn it all became too much for him.
