  1. Uncle Kenne, THANK YOU for posting a tribute to Gil Scott Heron What an amazing artist – he inspired so many (including your brother!) and had the socio-political intellect to reach through the masses and get to the heart of what really matters. RIP.

    This post is from May 2011 and, for some strange reason, never has had any views. I love the words, rhythm, and soul of Gil’s music.

    “The Constitution, a noble piece of paper would free society,
    It struggled but then died in vain
    And now Democracy is ragtime on the corner
    Hoping for rain
    It’s been hoping for some rain.”

    Yes, we keep hoping for some rain in a desert of despair!

    — kenne
