Gil Scott-Heron, R.I.P.

Gil Scott-Heron has left the building. He was 62. 

I first heard him on the old 1979 "No Nukes" album. 

Here's "We Almost Lost Detroit":



And the classic "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised":

and where did the revolution go? I have not been experienced of it. I have lived through those times and there was no revolution that I experienced.

A revolution of sorts will take place when some middle-of-the-road type folks miss 2 consecutive meals.
It almost never happens otherwise. (Not that it's a bad thing....)
