I am sorry to inform you of another death that occurred in the pop culture world. Isaac Hayes, a soul music legend was found unresponsive near a treadmill in his home. He was pronounced dead about an hour later at Baptist East Hospital in Memphis. The cause of his death is not known at this time. He was 65.
He laid the groundwork for disco, and he rapped before rap existed. Hayes won a Grammy and an Academy Award for his “Theme from Shaft.” He also attracted a whole new audience in 1997 when he became the voice of Chef on “South Park”.
Hayes will be greatly missed.
