Gil Scott-Heron: A Father and Son Story - Leslie Gordon Goffe
A look at the up and down life of American singer Gil Scott-Heron. The so called "godfather of rap" and "black Bob Dylan" who received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement award for songs like "Home is Where the Hatred is" and "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised". A story of talented but tortured souls and a fractured father and son relationship that kept apart footballer Gillie Heron and his singer songwriter son. Gil Scott-Heron was described in the mid 1970s as "one of the most interesting new leaders of the black cause in America" (paperback, new).
