Breaking News: Issac Hayes Passes at 65

It's been a tough weekend. First Bernie Mac and now Issac Hayes. From MSN:

Soul singer and musician Isaac Hayes has died, according to Memphis TV station WMC-TV. He was 65. The pioneering songwriter's many honors include a Grammy for the theme from "Shaft."

The station's Web site attributes the report to Shelby County Sheriff's Department spokesperson Steve Shular, saying a sheriff's deputy was called to Hayes' home after the singer's wife found him on the floor near a treadmill.

WMC-TV goes on to say Hayes was taken to Baptist East Hospital in Memphis, where he was pronounced dead at 2:08am. An investigation into the death is continuing, the station says.


R.I.P. Mr. Hayes.
