Video After The Jump

 

Don Cornelius, the creator of the ground breaking television show "Soul Train" has been found dead.

 

TMZ is reporting that the body of the 75-year old was discovered this morning at around 4 AM PT in his Sherman Oaks, California home. According to the report police believe Cornelius died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.


Sources said there was no sign of foul play, but the Los Angeles Police Department is investigating.

 

"Soul Train" was a very popular variety show that featured performances from many star R&B, soul and hip hop acts. It aired from October 1971 to until March 2006.


As the show's host, Cornelius ended each episode with the popular catchphrase: "I’m Don Cornelius, and as always in parting, we wish you love, peace and soul!”

 

R.I.P. Don Cornelius.

Let the illuminati theories fly!! Lol how come every death is illuminati related. How was he so influential important that the illuminati would want him dead. He wasn't, his death would not benefit them in any way. Stop over thinking everything. Lol sorry but some of u are so dillusional it cracks me up. P.s. michael Jackson's death was the result of a tourchered soul trying to Numb his pain with drugs, not a conspiracy theory

Damn I wonder what that was about, im guessing he was in debt, you gotta remember he probably hasnt gotten a good check from Soul Train in a while, and I dont even think that show made him a millionaire
