TALES OF GIL SCOTT HERON

Whilst scratching around trying to find some current news on Gil Scott Heron - without success -I happened upon Sir Noze's Tales Of Gil Scott Heron blog. With the emphasis on rarely heard live recordings by GSH my advice is Go Here :-

GSH celebrated his fifty seventh birthday on the first of April. Good health man.
On a sadder note Barnett Williams percusionist passed on in March, aged 61.
Barnett collaborated with Brian Jackson/GSH as percussionist with the Midnight Band. Heres a great evocotive account from Brian Jackson himself on the first fateful meeting with Barnett Williams. http://www.gilscottheron.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=2;t=000272

The image of Gil (above) is the creation of muscician/artist Ra aka Raul Sinier. http://www.raspage.com/
