Isaac Hayes – Pioneer of Film Music – passes away

Forget Chef (Although “South Park” would never have been the same without his presence – and departure), the late Isaac Hayes changed the history of cinematic music throughout his terrific career. The Oscar-winning theme from “Shaft” was a huge hit, both on the charts and in its usage in several films since the release of the 1971 movie. The record is a classic, as was Hayes – he will be missed.
