James Brown, 1933-2006
As one writer aptly put it, dramatic to the end- dying on christmas day. as a pagan, I couldn't give a fart about the date, but I suspect it wasn't in his plans to go out on a day like this. Ah well. Best laid plans and all. anyhow, I was never a collctour of his music, but like the Beatles, I very much appreciate the impact this man had on the music industry and the world in general. The godfather of soul will have a place in history for generations to come. I know there is more I could write, but I haven't had any entusiasm lately, so I will not strain the reader's patience with tripe.
