Gil Scott-Heron Interview


Gilbert Scott-Heron (April 1, 1949 - May 27, 2011) was an American soul and jazz poet, musician, and author, known primarily for his work as a spoken-word performer in the 1970s and 1980s. His collaborative efforts with musician Brian Jackson featured a musical fusion of jazz, blues, and soul, as well as lyrical content concerning social and political issues of the time, delivered in both rapping and melismatic vocal styles by Scott-Heron. His own term for himself was "bluesologist", which he defined as "a scientist who is concerned with the origin of the blues"

“The first revolution is when you change your mind about how you look at things, and see there might be another way to look at it that you have not been shown.

What you see later on is the results of that, but that revolution, that change that takes place will not be televised.”

Gil Scott Heron

The [first] revolution will not be televised.

because it can not be televised

because its in you

the first revolution cannot be televised

because it’s between the ears

the first revolution cannot be televised

because

the first revolution is when we change our mind about how we see things

the first revolution is when we choose to stop believing the crap the first revolution is when we choose to stop repeating the lies the first revolution is when we stop waiting for “them” to act and realise its we who must act. the first revolution is when we begin to set ourselves free from bullshit… then, when we do act, that’s something worth being televised.
