"The Voice Of Our Best Bad Thoughts"

Isaac Hayes died yesterday near Memphis, Tn. He was 65.

I know this sounds pretentious. I was really young, but white dudes really didn't have much going on in the way of hero qualities at the time. AM radio was an incredible thing back then, and I left mine on ALL night long for years. I was too young when Dylan first came along, so I didn't get my head around him until I was older. Just bad timing. Soul, Funk, and R&B was the rule of the day on the little clock radio. The other area in my head was occupied by the Woody, Hank, and all of the other country, bluegrass, and classical records that my father kept bringing home. My sis started turning me on to great stuff a little later when she started buying vinyl in earnest. OMG, then came 8-Tracks...
