Gil Scott-Heron One of my favorite musicians and people of all time. Gil was an extremely witty, intelligent, prolific and creative mind. He also had a unique sense of humor in his music and stage show. One of the most prolific artists I've ever known. By the time he was 21 he had completed two albums, written and published 2 novels and coined the famous phrase "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised". In total he released about 20 albums. Not bad. I've also had the pleasure of meeting him.
