We've posted once before about our admiration for Gil Scott-Heron, so no need to repeat except to say that he was a wholly original and dynamic force to reckon with.
For my part, I count myself lucky to have heard his music at crucial points in my life. Or, as someone wiser than me has said, "Say not in grief that 'he is no more,' but live in thankfulness that he was.
You WILL be missed Gil. Rest easy.
