The creator of Soul Train, Don Cornelius, recently died. Article HERE.
Growing up in the 70's, I have to confess that I wasn't always into the most popular music. I remember being in junior high, seeing a Kiss sticker on a friend's notebook and having to ask what it was all about. Anyway, while I didn't watch shows like American Bandstand and Soul Train end to end, I was at least aware that they existed. One of the things I recall about Soul Train was how very dapper the MC of Soul Train, Don Cornelius, appeared on screen. There was also that incredibly deep voice.
Anyway, it appears that all was not right in the life of Mr Cornelius. What a sad way to go out.
Rest in Peace dapper Don.
