This quote was under one of the video links that Keavin posted - very appropriate:
Say not in grief 'he is no more' but live in thankfulness that he was.

Shit..that is sad news...another musician that has passed away in 2011.
The Bottle was one of my favourite funk tracks with that burbling bass in the background

Gil Scott Heron said thing most musicians were too scared to say.
That's worth all the hush money in the world!
Peace and Love,

Paul; thanks for posting that quote, that's quite nice. I think that Gil Scott Heron was an influence not only musically but culturally for a lot of us; and for that I am grateful.
