Isaac Hayes Died

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Isaac Hayes died today He was pronounced dead at one of the hospitals here in Memphis (the one i was born in actually). I was so sad to hear the news today I have had the pleasure of meeting him on several occassions- he was always such a warm, gentle guy- so sweet! He has made such a huge impact on the music industry not only in this area, but all over too. I spent several years as a music industry major when i was in college- and he was always mentioned as such an icon.

He also used to have an amazing resturant downtown in the Peabody Place mall - Colin and I used to go there all of the time before it closed (i'm not sure if they're going to reopen it or not now -it closed a few months back sadly!)- not only was the food and the staff amazing there- but he used to have some of the most amazing singers in there too- even Ruby Wilson (for you blues fans!)

From his music, to his resturants, to television - He was such a talented guy -he will truely be missed!!!

Every Memphian i know right now is so upset over his passing The world lost a wonderful, very talented man today.

I feel so bad for his family- that had to have been aweful

He hasn't played the voice of chef for a while. From what i understand, he left after they made a crack at his religion (scientology).

I couldnt believe it. It seems it was his heart from what they said on the news. His poor wife.

How sad. I have heard of him but am not really familiar with his work.

According to that linked article, it says he had just finished "Soul Men" who also starred Bernie Mac, who died yesterday.

You should look up some of his stuff sometime Linda, he was very talented I read about his movie with Bernie Mac in that article as well. All i can say is Ironic!!! We lost two wonderful entertainers in the span of two days. Very sad.

I was suprised to hear he'd died on the news this morning. Even more at his age because he wasn't old either

I remember telling my dad when Richard Pryor died. I thought twice about telling him Isaac died because my dad is 66 and his heart isn't doing too well since his heart attack 1 1/2 years ago. Isaac Hayes was one of his favorite jazz artists, along with Stanley Turrentine and Grover Washington, Jr.

I grew up listening to the SHAFT soundtrack (among other jazz artists) and is one of my favorite albums. I had always had a dream of getting him to play at my wedding to surprise my dad.

Music is being made in heaven today...

I liked him a lot. One of the great icons of my youth was the cover of his album, "Hot Buttered Soul," which had a closeup overhead view of his bald head gleaming in the sun! Great sense of humor, and of course, great music.
