Default Another Great Guy Passes Away:(

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (Aug. 10) -Isaac Hayes, the pioneering singer, songwriter and musician whose relentless "Theme From Shaft" won Academy and Grammy awards, died Sunday, the Shelby County Sheriff's Office said. He was 65.

A family member found Hayes unresponsive near a treadmill and he was pronounced dead about an hour later at Baptist East Hospital in Memphis, according to the sheriff's office. The cause of death was not immediately known.
I liked this guy, so sad.

Trip, with her book & tea!

He had such a great voice. I know most people will remember him from this.

But as a South Park fun, he will always be Chef to me.

Yes, Trip, Isaac Hayes was definitely both a talent and an inspiration to those aspiring to better themselves. He left a good impression indeed.

Funny how you hear the words "Isaac Hayes" and you immediately hear the theme from "Shaft"! Thanks for sharing the video katlady, and thanks for letting us know of his passing, Trip.

I also will miss him, as he was a part of my childhood.

Interesting fact, Issac, Bernie Mack, and Samuel L Jackson were working on a movie together. Two of the three died this weekend.

So sad for the losses.
