Rest in Peace Gil Scott-Heron

Gil Scott-Heron: 'Did you here what they said'. Source.

Deeply, deeply saddened to wake up to the news that the poet, activist, songwriter, spoken word-artist and musician Gil Scott-Heron has passed away.

As an artist and someone who intertwined his political convictions with a profound creativity, he has perhaps effected me more than any other.

I was fortunate to see him perform live, something that stayed with me for a long, long time. He will be missed.

Read, read, read, read, read, read, read. Listen, listen, listen, listen, listen, listen, listen, listen.
