Won't Be Televised

Gil Scott Heron is dead at 62. He was an influential musician, especially in the Hip Hop world. He was also a junkie. Alec Wilkinson did a long piece on Heron in the New Yorker last year.

A pivotal figure in the musical culture of the '70s. He will be missed. Tell me brother what's the word?

This was the first thing I caught in the paper before going to work this morning. It's a damn shame. Thanks for the tip on The New Yorker piece--I didn't know it existed.
