Gil Scott-Heron Saved My Life

After a traumatic childhood Abdul Malik Al Nasir seemed to be heading for jail or an early death. Then, at the age of 18, he met the famous poet and musician – with remarkable consequences

I read with interest this article in the Guardian by an associate of Gil Scott-Heron's - which shows that this man walked the walk.  When he talked of helping fellow men - he meant it and demonstrated how.  I've read a number of obituaries over the last few weeks for him as an artist - this is a fitting testament to the man.
