    Unhappy Soul legend Isaac Hayes dies

    Isaac Hayes Dead

    Another legend is gone: Soul legend Isaac Hayes dies.
    Soul singer and arranger Isaac Hayes, who won Grammy awards and an Oscar for the theme from the 1971 action film "Shaft," has died, sheriff's officials in Memphis, Tennessee, reported Sunday.

    Relatives found Hayes, 65, unconscious in his home next to a still-running treadmill, said Steve Shular, a spokesman for the Shelby County Sheriff's Department.

    Paramedics attempted to revive him and took him to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly after 2 p.m., the sheriff's department said. No foul play is suspected, the agency said in a written statement.

    The really sad part is that kids today know Hayes only as the voice of Chef on South Park. I used to love playing the Shaft theme in the early 70s.

    "Hot Buttered Soul" wasn't too shabby either.

    A man who knew and practiced his craft well. He will be missed.

    I remember him as a good actor, like for The Rockford Files.
