Rowland S. Howard and Vic Chesnutt

Wednesday 6th January, 2010

We were sad to hear of the passing of the two music legends Rowland S. Howard and Vic Chesnutt over the Christmas break. Rowland S. Howard played for us last January at the Nick Cave curated ATP in Australia and his musical legacy speaks for itself. We were devastated and deeply saddened to hear that he lost his battle with liver cancer. Vic Chesnutt was another musical genius who passed away on Christmas day, he made so many good records and we were fortunate to have presented various shows for him over the past 10 years. Our thoughts are with the families and friends of Roland and Vic at this difficult time. 2009 was a bad year with so many legends from Ron Asheton to Lux Interior leaving us and we hope 2010 doesn’t follow the same pattern.
