Influential musician and poet Gil Scott-Heron died today at the age of 62. Widely regarded as a forerunner of rap, hip-hop and related genres, he was perhaps best known for his 1971 spoken word piece The Revolution will not be Televised: “The revolution will not go better with Coke. The revolution will not fight the germs that may cause bad breath. The revolution will put you in the driver’s seat. The revolution will not be televised…the Revolution will be Live.” It has been covered and sampled by KRS-One, Elvis Costello and Justin Bond, among others.
