Isaac Hayes Dead at 65
I learned this morning that Isaac Hayes, a great pioneering musician in the Soul genre, died at age 65 on Sunday. Stories can be found at MSNBC and BBC. Mr Hayes is best famous for his hit “Theme from Shaft” for the Shaft TV series. It was one of the best themes from that era. Besides winning many Academy and Grammy Awards, Mr Hayes was the voice behind “Chef” character on South Park until his departure in the tenth season due to medical reasons.
His unique voice will be missed. Watch a video of the hit, “Theme from Shaft” at YouTube:
