Singer, songwriter and playwright Oscar Brown Jr. died Sunday in Chicago after a brief illness, his family said. He was 78.

Brown was hospitalized in mid-April following emergency surgery to stop the spread of an infection in his lower spine. Before the surgery, he had complained of severe pain and suffered paralysis to both of his legs.

Professor Kim has written a very nice tribute about Oscar Brown Jr. We have truly lost a talented and special individual. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him..
