Sad, sad news from the music world. The Hardest Working Man In Show Business has left the stage for good.
These days James Brown is almost the punchline of a joke... the coked-out, drunk, wild-haired crazy James Brown. But he was called 'The Godfather of Soul' for a reason, y'all.
Check this out: James Brown performing at Live 8 about a year or so ago.
He was quite the "circus" in the past 10 years or so, but if you go back and listen to the music...
He definitely had the "funk". I feel that in the long run, he'll be remembered more for the music than the "train wreck" of a personal life that surrounded it.
Best wishes all, Merry Christmas!
