Gil Scott Heron (1949-2011)

Post by supermo on Sun May 29, 2011 11:47 pm

Poet, prophet, rapper, musician, junkie, recovered alcoholic, occasional genius. Sadly missed, may he RIP.

I refer the esteemed gentlemen of Stennymad to my review of Gil's last UK tour just over a year ago:

The world seems a little emptier today without him.

Nice tribute Mo. Champion

I actually thought about that gig you were at (and your subsequent review) just after I heard the news. Crying or Very sad

Fuckin 62 an'all! No

On a purely selfish level, it's doubly gutting given that he seemed to have rediscovered his best form again.

God bless Gil. Champion

Craig Charles' Funk & Soul Show (6Music) is definitely worth a whirl on the ole i-player if ya missed it tonight.

Whole show was a tribute to the great man.

Outstanding stuff. Champion
