:cry:

 

Last June, I took my 15 yr old daughter to see him perform. She loved the show and it gave her an appreciation for his music that no CD could.

 

He was booked to play New Year's Eve at BB King's Club in Times Square, NYC. That would have been a funky good time.

Brown's work has been replayed by the Fat Boys, Ice-T, Public Enemy and a host of other rappers. "The music out there is only as good as my last record," Brown joked in a 1989 interview with Rolling Stone magazine.

 

"Disco is James Brown, hip-hop is James Brown, rap is James Brown; you know what I'm saying? You hear all the rappers, 90 percent of their music is me," he told the AP in 2003.

Boy I'll miss James!

 

I had a memory this morning.

 

I think it was 1967 or 68. I got this James Brown album for Christmas. We were at my Grandma's place that year. She made me listen to it out in this small guest-house she had in the back. I was out there ALL day. She'd come in once in awhile and shake her head and leave. I believe I wore out that record the first day.

 

I doubt she was any happier the following year when I showed up with Led Zeppelin II.

 

James music always made me happy!
