Gil had one of the morning matinee slots at Coachella '99 on one of the smaller stages. At the time I had absolutely no idea how fortunate I was to have caught him and to have heard "There's a War Going On," which I STILL don't think has ever made it onto an album. He always bristled if you called him a progenitor of rap music, but there was no denying he could lay down a great rap. He loved jazz and he loved cocaine; I wish he'd loved one more and one less - but don't know if either was possible. RIP.

Definitely one of a kind. Musically unique with great passion for his politics. The revolution will not go better with Coke....

Welcome home, men of the 2nd Bn, 127th Infantry, 32d "Red Arrow" Brigade, WI Army National Guard! Job well done in Iraq! Never heard that track until I bought the "Undercover Brother" soundtrack CD years ago. Powerful stuff.
