Isaac Hayes RIP
« on: August 10, 2008, 04:03:19 PM »
Now I was going to say "They say that Isaac Hayes is a deaaad...." "Hush Your Mouth"

But I refrained from that.

Isaac Hayes passed today

Quote
MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Isaac Hayes, the baldheaded, baritone-voiced soul crooner who laid the groundwork for disco and whose "Theme From Shaft" won both Academy and Grammy awards, died Sunday afternoon after he collapsed near a treadmill, authorities said. He was 65.

He went a bit odd at the end but he was a stellar musician and tune writer.

And, since I love Trip Hop, without Ike there'd be two significant tracks missing from my Trip Hop collection:

Glory Box

And


Hell is Around the Corner
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/woRtoRiVMcA&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/woRtoRiVMcA&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1</a>

Both of which sampled Hayes' Ike's Rap II

Well sleep well man, it was a shortish run but you did some fantastic work.

Just posted this in "What's That Noise", but it should also be here.

My favorite Issac Hayes song and video.  He just oozes cool in this.

Sad, sad, sad.

He was the Duke of New York he was A-Number 1 !!

Black Moses was my favorite album. The LP has an awesome gatefold. Shaft the song was so much better than the actual film. He will be missed.

Goodbye children...

Here's to hoping there's a space ship that looks exactly like a 747 somewhere out there transporting his soul away from the evil Xenu and into eternal bliss.   :-\

I only know his from South park but this still sad news.

I guess there will be no The Return of Chef again.
