My wife and I saw him in concert at DAR Constitution Hall in the late 60s or early 70s. One of his warm-up acts was a young comedian named Gabriel Kaplan.

yes, he was the voice of CHEF from South Park.

He was also the one who left the show because Trey Parker and Matt Stone were MEAN’ to the Scientologists when the infamous episode came out.

Then again, in respect for the dead, he was one mean motha..(shaft!)

Very sorry to hear this. His work with Stax artists and his solo stuff (including the theme from “Shaft”) gave pleasure to so many millions—including me.

Sigh .............. Another one I wish to ‘travel well’. His music was great and the parts he played in the movies and on TV were entertaining and of course South Park was way out there. Thank you Isaac.

Don’t you sometimes wish you could erase the computer screen? I hate it when that happens to me.

Cheers! And a toast to a great musician!

I believe people have the right to their own faith, but I am not sure Issac Hayes would interested necessarily in prayers since he was a Scientologist.

In addition to Escape from New York, Hayes also had a memorable role on "The Rockford Files". I remember he kept calling James Garner "rockfish".

You can pray for the wayward souls too.

Isaac Asimov was an atheist (or at least an agnostic) but he saw no harm in someone praying on his behalf.

Born August 20, 1942. Just short of 66 years old.

Too young to go.

Two Tablespoons of cinnamon, and 2 or 3 eggwhites
A-Half a stick of butter, meeeelted..
Stick it all in a bowl baby, Stir it with a wooden spoon
Mix in a Cup of Flour, you’ll be in heaven soon
Say everybody have you seen my balls?
They’re big and salty and brown
If you ever need a quick Pick-me-up
Just stick my balls in your mouth!
Ooh, suck on my chocolate salty balls,
Stick em in your mouth and suck em!
Suck on my Chocolate Salty balls
They’re packed full of vitamins, and good for you,
So suck on My balls!

Quarter cup of unsweeted chocolate, and half cup of brandy
Then throw in a bag or two of sugar, and just a pinch of vanilla
Grease up the cookiesheet, cos I hate when my balls stick
Then Preheat the oven to 350°(tree-fitty), and give that spoon a lick
Say everybody have you seen my balls?
They’re big and salty and brown
If you ever need a quick Pick-me-up
Just stick my balls in your mouth...
Ooh, Suck on my chocolate salty balls
Stick em in your mouth and suck em!
Suck on my Chocolate Salty balls
they’re packed full of goodness, high in Fiber
Suck on My balls!

[sniff sniff] Hey, wait a minute, what’s that smell?
Smells like something burning
Well, that don’t confront me none
As long as I get my rent paid on the Friday.
Baby you’d better get back in the Kitchen..
Cos i’ve gotta Sneaking Suspicion..
Oh man baby, baby! You just burnt my balls!

Someone help me, my balls are on fire!
Get some ice baby! My balls are Burning!
Give some water, pour some water on me!
My Balls are burning!
Oh my goodness, Blow on em, Blow on em, do something!
Ooh, suck on my chocolate salty balls
Put em in your mouth and suck em!
Suck on my Chocolate Salty balls
Put em out baby, Blow em!
Suck on my balls, baby! Suck on my balls Baby!
Suck on my red hot, salty, chocolate balls
Put em out baby, hoo, hoo
Suck on my balls...
