R.I.P James Brown

https://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20061225/..._mu/obit_brown

"James Brown, the dynamic, pompadoured "Godfather of Soul," whose rasping vocals and revolutionary rhythms made him a founder of rap, funk and disco as well, died early Monday, his agent said. He was 73."

i wonder if he went out saying "WOOOW!!! i feel goo--"

R.I.P. mr. brown.

I'll never forget his style, classic! I loved what Eddie Murphy did with that style in "Celebrity Hot Tub" Too hot! huh! RIB JB, some times you lived it too large, but you were an original.

Wow, that's too bad.

My cousin was just telling me over Christmas dinner that he wanted to see James Brown when he hit town in early January. He said, "I want to be able to say that I saw James Brown at least once."

I was coming back from Florida and we hit some decent turbulence. I was listening to James Brown on my MP3 during it - I was dancing in my seat and everyone else was grabbing the sides with white knuckles.

I hope you didn't have any connections through Philly. Because, well, that would just suck.
