Gravity's Rainbow: Vic Chesnutt

Will Hermes, Village Voice, The, 24 November 1998

LIKE PLENTY of other folks in wheelchairs, Vic Chesnutt doesn't want your sympathy. In fact, he can challenge the compassion of even those closest to him. Like the time a couple years ago when he left his wife and bandmates stranded in Milwaukee after a show, making off with the van and the tour money and speeding through the night, hell-bent on finding a final resting place or some approximation thereof.
