Who was the only country singer to appear on Soul Train?  He also was the only singer to have four number one songs from the same album.

Whoever it was, had to be a tough audience. Like The Gap Band or George Clinton playing the Grand Ole Opry.

Daresay if this wasn't a duet, Earl Thomas would never have seen Don Cornelious' magnificent shrinking (over the years) afro hair on the show.

Don was an interesting story. An ex-Chicago cop, he hosted ST for over 20 years. Bought him, among other things, a nice spread up on Mulholland.

In 1982, he underwent neurosurgery for an arterial malformation in his brain. I guess the surgery may have corrected that but it left him with frequent seizures and a lot of daily head pain. In 2012, per his son, it all got too much and Don shot himself at home.

I'm not into country at all.  Anita I know, don't know Earl.  Agree with Joe, he'd never have been there alone.

Big Jack is right, too, in that the list of Soul Train guests would surprise! Maybe not as much a C&W singer but ... in addition to Bowie, you got Captain & Tennille, Jose Feliciano, Don Henley, Buffy Ste-Marie, Frankie Valli, Herb Alpert and Elton John. Not exactly known for Soul Music.

And that was over 22 years on the air . There was also Hall & Oates, Backstreet Boys, Beastie Boys, Justin Timberlake, & Teena Marie were had some to a lot of soul in their music, though Caucasian.

Doctor, in reading about Don's neurosugery, by his own account the 1982 operation lasted 21 hours (longest I've heard of). Said he knew it was complicated surgery and picked his surgeon for his "stamina" as much as anything.

When he shot himself, he was not dead on the scene. They rushed him from his home off Mulholland above Sherman Oaks to Cedars. Were there closer viable options in the Valley, and even if not, wonder if UCLA Med Ctr wouldn't have been quicker?
