RIP Brother Gil S-H Mix

2016 is already a bumper year for the claiming of musical icons. One from each genre leaves the earthly stage about once a month. Bowie, Haggard and now Gil Scott-Heron.

There is so much to say about this man and I may share my thoughts later in another place, but for now here is a slice of the man’s poetic and musical and political genius.

OF COURSE THIS IS OLD NEWS!  I misread a Tweet! Sorry folks. Egg on face!
