Dec 30, 2010 Gil Scott-Heron is here now
Singer and musician Gil Scott-Heron has held my interest for decades. In the 1970’s, he sang about people addicted to The Bottle, and then for a substantial chunk of time fell into addiction with cocaine.
And now, Gil has bounced back in the midst of his first album in years, I’m New Here. Two selections from the album, posted above, are "I’m New Here" and "Me and the Devil." Much has changed since he recorded "Pieces of a Man" in the early Seventies.
The revolution will not be televised.
