    Folk/Rock/Punk Singer Vic Chesnutt commited suicide in Athens on Christmas Day. He had been in a Depression since learning of a lawsuit by a local Hospital in the amount of $70,000
    after he could not keep up payments on his meager earnings as a musician. Vic was wheelchair bound since a 1983 Accident left him partially paralyzed, and he owed the hospital for a recent surgery. He had been touring with his new band which included Guy Piccioto ex-Fugazi and 3 members of Godspeed You Black Emperor who all happen to be Canadian and could not comprehend how American's handle their canibalistic health care system.
