RIP: Don Cornelius, creator and host of the legendary musical variety show Soul Train, was found dead this morning of an apparent self-inflicted gun shot wound in his home in Sherman Oaks, California. He was 75.
Introducing many Americans to soul music through his hit TV show which premiered in 1971, Cornelius helped promote the careers of such musicals icons as James Brown, Aretha Franklin, and Michael Jackson.
He is perhaps best remembered, even among non-viewers, for his signature catchphrase, with which he would end each show: “I’m Don Cornelius, and as always in parting, we wish you love, peace and soul!” 
[tmz.]
Sniff.  Heard this on the radio this morning.  I’m torn between wanting to know more, and wanting to leave him alone.
