GIVEAWAY! DAY #4: Gil Scott-Heron at S.O.B.'s in NYC (6/10/09)
Ok folks. Last day and question of the Gil Scott-Heron ticket giveaway. I really appreciate all of you stopping by and participating thus far. Even you're just now joining in, you still have a chance at this. All week long I've been asking Gil Scott-Heron trivia questions. People who know and follow the man's body of work probably know all of the answers, but still, none of the questions are beyond the reach of some research and googling. Anyways here are the previous 3 questions:
1.) Gil Scott-Heron was the first artist signed to what legendary American record label?
2.) What Gil Scott-Heron song did Warren G sample for the intro to his 1994 hit "Do You See?"
3.) Gil Scott-Heron's "Home Is Where The Hatred Is" has been remade twice. Once by a R&B Soul singer and again by a rapper(s). Who are they? Name both artists.
And now the final question of the contest. This is for those of you who really listen to Gil. I would tell you the name of the song, but the answer is in the title. HINT!
In 1970 Gil Scott-Heron recorded a piece. At the end he said to whom and where he planned on sending his doctor's bills. Who and Where was it?
Again, the first person to email me on FRIDAY with ALL FOUR correct answers will get a pair of tickets to see Gil at S.O.B.'s in NYC on next Wednesday, June 10th. Good luck and thank you for playing.
