    RIP Don Cornelius

    Imagine this as the Ultimate Tribute:
    A Soul Train Line of LPSG members at clothing optional Haulover Beach, FL.
    Dancing to the O'Jays "Love Train" playing in the background.

    Please feel free to add a favorite "Back-in-the-day" artist & tune for the dance mix.

    May he rest in peace. Soul Train was truly groundbreaking and not only was it Black History it was Music History.

    He gave a platform to so many artists who might not otherwise have ever had one, and he brought music to so many who might not otherwise have been exposed to it. I remember seeing it on (I think it was) Sunday mornings in my early youth.

    A big loss.

    Yeah, the apparent cause of death is self inflicted gunshot according to news articles.

    Sounded like he had been through a nasty divorce and been suffering from early onset alzheimers/dementia on top of that. Between the two, he may have decided to just end his suffering.
