R.I.P: Mogul - Isaac Hayes

Isaac Hayes - 65, the bald-headed, 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. Hayes was pronounced dead at Baptist East Hospital in Memphis an hour after he was found by a family member, the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office said. The cause of death was not immediately known.

With his muscular build, shiny head and sunglasses, Hayes cut a striking figure at a time when most of his contemporaries were sporting Afros. His music, which came to be known as urban-contemporary, paved the way for disco as well as romantic crooners.

Mr. Hayes will be greatly missed. Following the death of comedian and legend Bernie Mac, this definitely checks my mind frame. Anyone and anything can be snatched at anytime. Let's get RIGHT people.


(( well Isaac))
