The world had lost another great name in music and pop culture. Soul Train Host Don Cornelius was found dead in his home in Sherman Oaks, CA., this morning from an apparently gun shot suicide. Cornelius was 75 years old and was reported to be battling a brain disease.

He suffered a stroke a little while back while on probation for domestic violence against his recently divorced ex-wife, Viktoria Chapman Cornelius. He said he wanted to get his divorce finalized before it was too late giving the impression that this was something he had been contemplating for some time.

Cornelius was the creator of the famous dance variety show, Soul Train. Famous singers like Micheal Jackson, Smokey Robinson, and many other made their mark on the show and made it one the most memorable shows ever. I know EVERYONE’s been in a Soul Train line at one time or another.

R.I.P Don Cornelius…love, peace, and SOOOOOOUUUUUULLLLLL!
