Gil Scott-Heron, 1949-2011

I first heard Gil Scott-Heron back in the late 80's, freshman year of college, where Joe and I found a 12" single to his reflections on the decade "B Movie". BUt it would be a few years later when I would finally hear the one he was most noted for...



Since then there have been many more...



And some that continue to play in my head, like whenever I ride the metro in D.C.



And even the last album that he put out a few months ago still packs a punch.



RIP Gil. You finally deserve it.

Funny--I was just listening to "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" a week or so ago...
