Yes, rest in peace. One thing about today's world, you find out faster than ever when well known people pass away. I had not thought of him for years. I remember many years ago walking down the corridor of the Polo Lounge in the Beverly Hills hotel (used to live in CA), and walking in the other direction was Don Cornelius. That was a treat! These days, you pull up a web page, see a face, and instantly think, uh-oh is he dead? And sure enough it's true. I just wonder what was wrong with him... a self-inflicted gun shot? No idea of course what goes on in the lives of others. But, he was 75 years old... could it have been psychological problems (dementia), money problems, health problems? Sad... Can't help but think of The Soullllll Train! Saw that show so many times growing up. That show and Don Cornelius were famous around the world... A friend from Nigeria told me that even in Africa he remembers people looking forward to getting up Saturday morning and watching Soul Train on tv.
