R.I.P. Don Cornelius

Soul Train was how I learned about "urban" music, it was the perfect complement to American Bandstand and for a kid that was totally obsessed with music, it's one of the things looking back that made growing up when I did special.

I know that Don Cornelius has been in poor health in recent years but to hear that he took his own life made me very sad.

I don't know much about the person Cornelius was but I know that he entertained me and helped build the foundation for the music that I have always loved and is such an essential part of my life.
