Gil Scott-Heron

I'm sad to report the passing of poet Gil Scott-Heron.
A friend and I went to see him perform at SOB's (Sounds of
Brazil) in NYC a year or two ago.
She had had no exposure to his work and came away wowed.
It was a thrill for me to finally see him live having been a
Fan since the 70s. He was in fine form.
Here's a set of videos from various points in his career.
