[Don Cornelius, media icon and creator/host of the legendary Soul Train, passes away at age 75]
Don Cornelius was much more than just the host of one of the most popular television shows---he was a true visionary of the media. Peep one of the most alluring interviews/performances on ST (featuring none other than Mr. Wonderful himself), as well as soak in Questlove's wonderful tribute piece about Don Cornelius. May he rest in peace.
Oh, after the cut, I implore you to take an hour out of your day and watch the full VH1 RockDoc: Soul Train: The Hippest Trip In America. It's some fantastic knowledge.
