RIP Gil Scott-Heron

Today we lost another musical legend as Gil Scott-Heron passed away at the age of 62.  Scott-Heron was credited with being the forefather to Hip Hop, as his spoken word Raps predated the Hip Hop movement by well over a decade.  His songs made you think more than most artists and wheteher you agreed or disagreed with his message; you definitely listened to him.  He is a top candidate on our Rock and Roll list, but despite this and his undeniable influence in the world of music, we do not see him honored in Cleveland posthumously.
