This is very sad. I *loved* Issac Hayes.



Here's the entire article and an excerpt below:



LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Oscar-winning soul singer Isaac Hayes who, along with Al Green, James Brown and Stevie Wonder, was one of the dominant black artists in the early 1970s, died in Memphis on Sunday. He was 65.



His friend and former manager, Onzie Horne, told Reuters he spoke to Hayes' wife, Adjowa, who confirmed that Hayes had died.



Hayes, who once told Reuters that he was a "health fanatic," was reportedly found unconscious near a running treadmill at his home. He was rushed to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. The cause of death was not known. In early 2007, Hayes suffered a stroke.

Isaac Hayes was just so cool.

I was saddened to hear about this too. The world got less cool the minute he left it.

I'm not too familiar with his music, but I did like his biggest hit. It is sad.

I'm singin' here to get rid of fear
Hope it disappears right here with the rain
But I know life is pain, not like a fairytale
Meaningless to pray, so just goin' on my way

Wasn't he the voice of Chef on South Park, who spent years on the program that denounced every single religion on the planet, amongst other things, but then quit when it insulted his religion, Scientology? Yeah...

just cause he was wierd about the religion thing doesn't make it any less sad that he died. he was still a great artist whatever his beliefs/attitude towards beliefs.
