Gil Scott Heron performed in the uk tonight at Somerset House for the long overdue performance after a troubled past few years,Gil walked to the front of the stage and talked to the audience thanking everyone for coming and Joked how “a lot of people said that on my new album i was angry about being in prison, i tell you if have ever been in prison when you get out you not angry your very very happy”.
Gil then sat back down at his huge fender rhodes and piano and sung Winter in America showing that although the voice may be damaged and not the same as those classic recordings of the seventies he still a great live performer and well worth seeing.
