Vic Chesnutt died on Christmas Day, 2009, two days after taking an overdose of muscle relaxants. The musician was in a car crash at age 18 that left him partly paralyzed. WHYY’s Fresh Air remembers him with excerpts from an early December 2009 interview. “You know, I’ve attempted suicide three or four times,” he said. “It didn’t take. And this is really a breakup song with death.”
