R.I.P. Gil Scott-Heron (1949-2011)
Throughout the late 70s-80s, I saw Gil Scott-Heron perform numerous times. I attended the D.C. show that was documented and released on DVD as BLACK WAX (1980). One of my NYU 16mm film shorts, GUN (1983), was based on his song of the same name. Gil will be missed but his music and poetry will live on!
