    Sad news. Only 62, and apparently had a great album out only last year.

    I saw him live twice and his personality really came across - seemed to be having a good time.

    Quote by Scott-Heron in 'Blues and Soul' 2-15 December,1980.."wisdom comes through pain", meaning, appropriately, that only he (or she) that feels it, knows it.

    Those wishing to revise their memories of Gil, and those new to the name, have an opportunity to experience one of the landmarks of black-and international-cultural history on BBC TV Channel 4 tomorrow Monday June 27th.
