I hate to bring such sad news up during the time of joy, but Legendary Blues and R&B singer James Brown has died.
((James Brown self-proclaimed "Godfather of Soul" and five-decade R&B legend, died early Monday (12/25) morning in Atlanta at the age of 73.
Brown was admitted to Emory Crawford Long Hospital in Atlanta on Sunday after a routine dental appointment indicated signs of severe pneumonia, according to wire service reports. ))
The man was an amazing performer in live concerts, and his music has influenced many musical artist even today. I remember going to a free concert of his during an event at the riverfront in Louisville. I can safely say that the man knew how to put on a very entertaining show. You can see his influence in MC Hammer and MJ's shows.
Despite his many flaws, he was amazing person, and will be missed.
