Gil Scott-Heron Exits the Darknessnew

Gil Scott-Heron was never able to cash in on the hyperbolic and lofty praise he received in the 70's ("The black Bob Dylan," anyone?), instead he faded into the abyss during the mid-'90s and beyond, only to occasionally resurface not onstage, but on a police blotter.
