Gil Scott-Heron has died 1949-2011 - The revolution will not be televised

I am terribly, terribly grieved today - Gil Scott-Heron has just died. His sharp wit attacking mainstream media in 'The Revolution will not be televised'...

...and the passion of his disgust at the military industrial complex in my favorite Gil Scott-Heron song, 'work for peace'.

The planet has lost an amazing and wise soul. His death is a terrible loss. Rest in Peace Gil, you were a beauty and strength we seldom see in artists today.
