Curtis Mayfield - Here but I'm gone

I can't stop listening to this song. It feels personal listening to the words. It kind of makes me realise how Zero 7 have nicked some of their chilled out tunes. Curtis Mayfield is a legend. He was actually paraylsed from the neck down whilst he wrote this song that's awesome determination recording it one line at a time.

Being paralysed sure is a bad fuckin beat.. but this guy didn't let it stop him. Fair play. He sure is a marker for overcoming adversity.
