Gil Scott-Heron Has Died
Sad news. The great American poet-musician, Gil Scott-Heron has died, at the age of 62. Scott-Heron was a ground-breaking artist who pioneered spoken word and rap, and achieved world fame with his 'The Revolution Will Not Be Televised', perhaps the most influential spoken word/rap performance. After years of challenge and addiction, he returned brilliantly the last few years with several albums created with a new generation of musicians.
