Gil Scott Heron
Gil Scott-Heron Is Dead
Gil Scott-Heron, a man who is widely regarded as one of the most influential poets and musicians of his generation, not to mention one of the progenitors of hip-hop, has passed away at the age of 62. He is best known for his spoken word piece "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised," a piece which is as poignant today as it was when he wrote it. RIP.
