He was not only the host of the famous t.v. series ‘The Soul Train” many others can agree that he was also responsible for changing the landscape of music. “The Soul Train” contained music and dancing and later an award show.

BET reports Soul Train debuted nationally in 1971 and went on to change the landscape of music. The program, which featured live dancing and performances from the most influential Black artists of all time, including Al Green, James Brown and the Jackson Five, ended its run in 2006. Stephen Hill, BET’s President of Music Programming and Specials, says, “If not for Soul Train, there would be no 106 & Park.”

Just getting out of an nasty divorce where he allegedly some time ago had beatin up his ex wife during there marriage and pled no contest and was put on 3 years of probation. Sources close to Don say “the TV icon was plagued with health issues for years … including a stroke and a condition that required brain surgery.

We all thank the Don for being part of one of the biggest waves in the music scene, and although his life didn’t seem to be easy may he rest in peace.,

“The advice he gave me, it’s already affected the way I’ve been in the studio for the last week,” he said. “So let’s just say he’s full of knowledge and he’s a solid guy. Most definitely that’s maybe my biggest hip-hop influence in the game.
