As I heard the news about Isaac Hayes’s passing on Sunday, a day after Bernie Mac’s death, that rule of the three came to mind. Who would join the dynamic duo in an untimely death? At first I thought it was Lil Wayne’s daughter; that turned out to be a bad internet joke. Turned on the radio, a caller said Samuel Jackson joined the soul men. Do you know what kind of freaky shit that would have been?
Thankfully that turned out to be a case of half-ear-to-the-radioitis. The caller mentioned Samuel Jackson because he’s in a movie with Bernie Mac and Isaac Hayes called Soul Men, it premieres this November; a movie that’s now a first week must-see.more..
What kind of weekend is this? Isaac Hayes aka Black Moses, passed away today in his home in Memphis, Tennessee.
Isaac Hayes’ wife, son, and his wife’s cousin returned home from the grocery store and found him in a downstairs bedroom. He was immobile and unresponsive, lying next to a still-running treadmill. Paramedics were called, they took him to Baptist Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly after 2 pm. No crime is suspected. Isaac Hayes was 65 years old.
Does speechless count for the next two paragraphs?
