also strange that he would die just two days after his campaign for the memphis heart clinic at the olympics.

The man laid down some immortal cuts. He seemed indestructible. This is kind of shocking.

Must be nice in the great beyond catching up on good times with Otis Redding and Rufus Thomas.

holy shit, that's stunning. i was watching a documentary on stax records this weekend and kept thinking that hayes was a crazy motherfucker - who buys a custom gold-lined caddy? chain mail shirt? thought the term 'black moses' was blasphemous, yet posed quasi christ-like for the album of the same name.

i'll have to throw some hayes into rotation today. RIP!
