rip gil scott-heron

RIP Gil Scott-Heron (Chicago 1949-04-01 > New York 2011-05-27), a seventies ànd early eighties favorite somewhere smack dab in the middle between Lightnin’ Rod, Richard Pryor and Jon Lucien, or even … Lou Rawls ;-) Or should I also namedrop Bill Withers and Robert Wyatt to paint a perfect picture? So sad he didn’t live to see the reappraisal that was long overdue. Nor for us to see his career fully revive and peak in new masterpieces.
