Gil Scott-Heron (born April 1, 1949) is an American poet, musician, and author known primarily for his late 1970s and early 1980s work as a spoken word soul performer and his collaborative work with musician Brian Jackson.

His collaborative efforts with Jackson featured a musical fusion of jazz, blues and soul music, as well as lyrical content concerning social and political issues of the time, delivered in both rapping and melismatic vocal styles by Scott-Heron.

The music of these albums, most notably Pieces of a Man and Winter in America in the early 1970s, influenced and helped engender later African-American music genres such as hip hop and neo soul. Scott-Heron's recording work is often associated with black militant activism and has received much critical acclaim for one of his most well-known compositions "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised". Scott-Heron's unique proto-rap style influenced a generation of hip-hop artists.

His new record was released last week to rave reviews.

I wonder what he will think of aberdeen compared to the other places on his tour - manchester, london, edinburgh....how did we get so lucky?

He has played in Aberdeen twice before and it was a road block both times!

I heard about this because of Vic Galloway and he played The Revolution... Forgot how good that song was. Never heard anything else by him though, will check it out and see if it is worth all that cash!

I saw him twice at the Venue and was mesmerised. However the current hype is actually putting me off.
The first time he played was much better than the return visit.IMO

No, all good to go on our end for now.

I think London tomorrow will likely be cancelled but Scottish dates intact.

Thank the lord.

I don't see how he can make it here if he can't make it to London....hope he does though!

Any idea what time he'll be on stage/ finished? Really looking forward to it, but panicking that I'll miss the 21:55 train. Though theres a slightly later one that will get me halfway home...Bollocks, it'll be worth the walk for the gig.
