Of Don Cornelius taking his own life.

What a shame.  It’s unfortunate, but this tarnishes his legacy in my eyes.

His legacy is a great one.  As the host of Soul Train, he brought black, mostly urban music into the mainstream.  With that, he influenced countless musicians (and clothing designers and dancers).

A sad day for all music fans, I hope he’s remembered for how he lived than how he died.
