The Godfather of Soul: James Brown

Filed under: music — Tags: — Towse @ 2:49 am

Who would’ve thought after all the years and all that living that James Brown would die on Christmas Day of congestive heart failure/pneumonia in a hospital at age 73?

This was certainly not the way I would’ve ever figured he’d leave this earthly realm. He always seemed more a “bang!” than a whimper-exit sort of guy.

Spin your copy of “I Feel Good” and wish the man a speedy journey. I think he would’ve been amused to see the news reports and obits pour in: Siberian News Online,, Sky News Australia, the Telegraph, BET, PBS, Newsday, Bostonist, Irish Times and fourteen hundred plus others.
