  1. Gil Scott has always been too cool. A deep brother, who’s spoken word in the 70’s was filled with revolution. “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised” is an old school classic. Check it out.

    1. Walter thank you :-) i was born later exactly in 1967 so i discovered him now , one year later as he died last year in May …..unfortunately

  2. I was lucky enough to meet him in Germany in the 90’s when we were both touring over there and we were staying in the same hotel. For me – this is his iconic work: ‘The bottle’
