The Revolution Will Not Be Televised.

Godfather of rap?! Arguably. By far, NOT my genre of choice, but the guy was influential as hell.

Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.

I don't have any of his books...I'm going to pick up some of his poetry, at the least. Apparently influenced by Langston Hughes, among others - always a good thing.

He just finished a new album, and was about to go on a cross country tour. They just announced that he was scheduled to perform at the world Café live soon. He was three years younger than me.
