Damn; he took the bitch way out; I guess Soul Train will really never come back now. I do not understand why he chose that route though; it was in syndication; so he was getting that royalty money; I guess he must not have wanted his ex wife to get the cash; at least his kids will be okay.

His health was declining, I guess he didn't want to become an invalid and burden his fam.
Whatever the reason, it's some sad shit.

I watched Soul Train documentary last night on VH1 for the first time and i liked it. I was a fan of the show and i liked Don Corneilus. Props to him for putting together a black music show for black music artists because black music artists probably wouldn't have gotten any shine on other tv shows besides American Bandstand. That's sad he killed himself but maybe he got tired of his health issue bothering him and he didn't wanna suffer anymore. I'd rather him kill himself than suffering badly. RIP Don.
