I just read some heartening news a few minutes ago. Don Cornelious, the founder of “Soul Train,” was found dead this morning in is California home from suicide.
As far as details are concerned there isn’t much available, but I would like to thank Don for bringing us a lot of great memories. I remember waking up every Saturday morning to watch the show with my family as a kid. Mr. Cornelious leaves behind a great legacy with 1,110 episodes and 35 years of music history, “Soul Train” touched and inspired generations of artists and music lovers. He will be missed.
