anyone know any more? all over twitter
Oh no please don't be true.
Can't find anything on Twitter other than people saying there's a rumour going around on Twitter...
...that's not true.
If so the world is a more desolate place.
nothing official yet, really really hope this isn't true!
Nothing on any news sites yet...would be a weird thing to make up though, so I'm guessing it's true...
Some publisher who's wrote stuff for The Guardian, doesn't look like the kind of person who would make something like that up :(
He's the only source for the news so far, but it's strange to think why he'd lie...
Someone might have told him Gil Scott Heron is dead good.
that would be really shit :(
RIP if so.
such an amazing musician, even without the godfather of rap cultural significance he's still written some of the best albums of all time.
But at least he made it long enough to give us I'm New Here. A lovely album.
Going to re-visit I'm New Here as soon as I get the chance. RIP Gil.
what lyrics! what delivery!
why don't i know who he is?
after long time struggle with debts, drugs, ill health and prison he only very recently finally got back to playing live along with releasing and recording music again.
and really love Spirits
pleased i got to see him in the middle of last year, and pleased he seemed funny, confident and idk, maybe to some degree feeling vindicated...i hope so.
In the form of a Spotify mix.
A truly great voice
