I'm barely holding it together right now, but I want to get through this.

Sean was a great human being. I've been speaking/talking/chopping it up with him online for almost 15 years now. Had the pleasure to meet him and Scorp almost a decade ago in Chicago. He was cool as fuck, funny as hell, and had an encyclopedic knowledge of music. Brought more humor and insight and in-depth knowledge to this board that almost anyone.

I know we like to lament that "OKP is dead" or "The Lesson is dead," but I will say this site really missed him when he stopped posting here a while back.

I'm at a loss for words. Love you, bro. Peace be onto you and your family.

I can't believe it at all, this is some truly sad shit mane, we use to always speak on music from here then when he left here, the conversations, mixes, posting of songs continued on facebook.

Sean will be missed, he always had an upbeat way of talking about music, instead of focusing on the negative, he loved sharing music and giving artists their credit, that's what I liked about him the most.

Damn mane, damn, another homie is gone, damn.

i'm glad i made it a point to see Sean when i was in Chicago over the Christmas holiday. i was looking forward to getting a chance to kick it and touch some turntables and talk some more shit on my next visit down.

i'm sitting at work trying to fake the funk, but i'm fucked up right now.

He shared with me clips from his show and told me the pros and cons he encountered. Very good advice. He will be missed.

I'd flown out there to pick up a bunch of records and get them back to Cali. The evening after I picked up the records, I drove my rented van (full of said records) down to the Southside to meet him and Scorp at the Fela Night event. I believe DJ Spinna was DJing.

Anyway, we kicked it for a while, had some drinks, and rapped about all sorts of music-related shit. Talked a lot about Roy Ayers. Sean was definitely as knowledgeable about music in person as he was online.

Sean Haley wouldn’t have known me by name, and there’s only a small chance he would have remembered my handle, but none-the-less I appreciated the conversations I had with him and everything he taught me, directly or indirectly. There is no doubt he shaped my thoughts and knowledge with regards to the history of house and dance music, and there are times when I am reminded of something he said or wrote that resonated with me.

I am not in a position to speak authoritatively on him or his life, only to say that I felt his influence and his impact even in my way, and I am appreciative of that. If I feel that at my distance, at a passing acquaintanceship, I can only imagine what it was for friends and family.

RIP

The Chicago Music/DJ community is really shocked and shaken by this sudden loss heavily. I met him on The Lesson before I actually met him in person. A huge loss.

Rest in power, Brotha Sean ✊🏿❤️🙏🏿

One of my favourite posters here and a guy who on one hand was super-serious about music yet had the ability to discuss it in a fun, playful manner. When I started to post here, it felt like he was one of the guys who set the tone of the place and made it an attractive msgboard; I genuinely feel that much of the appeal of the lesson died when he and other posters with his attitude stopped posting and the MAD!-brigade took over. Whatever... R.I.P
to a dude I never met but who I suspect was awesome

I tried to play only music that I knew he liked, based on convos we'd had over the years here in The Lesson.

It's heavy on the funk/soul/jazz tip, with a bit of hip-hop to start things off. I realize I omitted house and rock, but I hope it captures at least part of his tastes and did them justice. He had boundless knowledge of damn near all music.

http://adp.fm/episodes/episode-199-7/

Here's the playlist:

Public Enemy - Prophets of Rage
Curtis Mayfield - Future Shock
Marvin Gaye - T Plays It Cool
The JBs - Blow Your Head
The JBs - The Grunt
James Brown - I'm a Greedy Man
Archie Bell & The Drells - Tighten Up
The Soul Searchers - Funk For the Folks
Johny Hammond - Tell Me What to Do
Lonnie Liston Smith - Expansions
Jimmy Castor Bunch - King Kong
Sly and the Family Stone - (You Caught Me) Smilin'
Love Unlimited - Move Me No Mountain
Ohio Players - Funky Worm
Sean Haley - FireDance
