RIP - Isaac Hayes

Another sad report from TV Tonight - Isaac Hayes has been found dead beside his home treadmill age 65.

Hayes first found fame in the '70's when he penned the hit "Theme from Shaft". Some say he was responsible for the disco boom.

Most people around my age and younger will better remember Hayes as the voice of "Chef" from "South Park" - the well-meaning, but over sexed ladies-lover, who often had a sexy song to help the boys out through a problem.

Hayes had a falling out with the creators of South Park when they started lampooning Scientology at every available opportunity.
