Issac Hayes found dead in his home today at 65. I will post more in the Comments Thread when I learn it apparently he was found dead next to his Treadmill. I do not know his health history,but that is so sad. The Absolute King of Cool. Below is a video of an amazing Live Version of Shaft...it is from 1973...It seems like the Gods are taking home some of the Finest Comedians and Musicians....it aint' right... too sad a weekend. ( Click the Title has article linked to it).I have a story about him, but I will blog it another time.
( Other songs to look for "Soulman", Burt Bachrach songs, "Black Moses" and backup for Otis Redding you can see him...)
"We have the knowledge, technology, research, resources, and experience," he urges. "Let's turn crime, illiteracy, unhealthy, unproductive poverty lifestyles around from the ground up... One child, one community at a time - we can change the world! Let's give our children our best." Issac Hayes said this in an interview 2006 ( off the his BIO website)
