Tribute to “Truth Troubadour” Vic Sadot (d. 10/6/18)

I’m very sorry to report that Vic Sadot, the “Truth Troubadour,” passed away this past weekend of as-yet-unknown causes.

On Saturday October 6, Vic was supposed to show up at the Grand Lake Theater in Oakland, California with musical equipment for the “Was the 2016 Election Stolen?” event. When he failed to make it, a friend and colleague drove to his apartment, knocked on his door, and received no response. It took almost two hours to find a building manager to open the door. When they entered the apartment, “Vic appeared to have pushed his chair back from his computer table and then slumped down onto the floor.”

Vic Sadot was Chair of the Social Justice Committee of the Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian-Universalists. He was also an intensely committed 9/11 truth activist who infused his music with humor and outrage. I met him in 2005 at the Truth Emergency Convergence in Washington, DC and was struck by his ebullient and fiery spirit, and his outrage at the lies and injustice that were reaching monumental proportions. That outrage, and his acerbic creative response, never subsided.

In this special episode of Truth Jihad Radio (recorded in less than ideal “studio conditions” in Tarragona, Spain) I will speak about Vic for a few minutes and then play some of his best songs.

    Oh my deepest sympathy Kevin. Very sorry to hear the sudden and sad news
    My condolences to all his family and friends.
    I remember doing a FFWN show with Vic and we communicated a few times by email exchanging Info, articles and he used to send me links to his latest music albums
    I am saddened by his sudden death and I know he will be greatly missed by you, Tony and others in the 911 Truth Movement of which Vic participated greatly
    May he rest in peace

    Vic and I met at the Berkeley Library. We performed at the Unitarian Universalist open Mic when Vic took over for Country Joe Mcdonald. Vic did a superb Job as MC. I later learned from him the hard time he’d had making it TO Berkeley in order fullfill his dream. ie truck broke down, landed in Berkeley on zero.. Vic shared my apartment 2009, set me up with The sixty one, Linkedin, and other sites. Always a help in whatever capacity he was able. I miss him terribly n was so sad to learn of his passing nearly a full year and some months late.. I have been stuck in Lodi..AGAIN..
