Good Gil Scott-Heron -The Bottle

Gil Scott-Heron is a genius! He probably should have taken the message in this song as not just for the bottle, but for the crack pipe as well!

Your Music Is.... Trivia: Gil Scott-Heron's Dad, Giles "Gil" Heron (nicknamed "The Black Arrow") was a Jamaican football player who, in the 1950s, was the first ever black player to play for Glasgow's Celtic Football Club.

Along with Brian Jackson he created this masterpiece! That's some funky flute playing! All tunes need a funky Bass player and a flute over the top! Its essential!

Let's hope Gil can stop snorting the Coke and get back to writing some great tunes...

I suspect we'll see Gil here again at some point as he does have a huge back catalog!
