Don Cornelius -- Soul Survivor

12/24/2007 2:41 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"Soooooulllll Traaaaain" host Don Cornelius, 71, must have wanted to show the world he's still around -- so he shook it over to the Ivy, where there's always a camera on the menu. Say cheese!

A leather-clad Don was sure to show the cameras he was forkin' over a $20 tip to the valet -- but ended up grabbin' some change before he pulled out.

Let's hope it wasn't his last money, and he doesn't run out of gas, honey!

Oh, wow. I've been watching Soul Train reruns up here in Canada, and my husband and I can only grin at the disco outfits and dance moves from the 70's/80's that we remember so well. The music is still great R+B/soul. The old Soul Train shows are like a time capsule snapshot, and can be a hoot to watch.

Soul Train. In the 70's, it came on only once a week... Saturday at midnight or was it 1am (I'm thinking it was 1am)... I had to stay up really late to watch it. I used to try to time the ending of the opening Soul Train call. Never, not once, hit it. But it was brought to us by Afro-Sheen... and Ultra-Sheen. What a memory. Thanks, Don.

I can't stand this guy. Years ago, in the 70s I think it was, I was watching a Soul Train where the performer was doing Cornelius' wife. Cornelius was all nice at first, then really lit into the guy. It was amazing; I couldn't believe they'd show that on TV. Maybe it was live? Ever since then, I thought Cornelius was, as another poster said, a "tool." What a loser. He is so 3 decades ago! "Let's give it up!"

Don Cornelius still has money. If TMZ followed me around I would tip the valet $30 just to show I'm ok too. SEE ME?!!!

In Reference to the comment in the caption.The white Media and their cronies are so jealous and such haters. A lot of you wish that all Black folks could be broke and at your beck and call. But I don't think so.
Don't be mad because you're white and have no soul or sense of rhythm. Maybe that white woman got all of his money if he is indeed broke !
