Title: James Brown Passes Away On Christmas Day
Post by solodka on Dec 25th, 2006 at 9:12pm
How very sad I was when I heard the news this morning.
Legendary Singer James Brown Dies at 73

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.

Brown was hospitalized with pneumonia at Emory Crawford Long Hospital on Sunday and died around 1:45 a.m. Monday, said his agent, Frank Copsidas of Intrigue Music. Longtime friend Charles Bobbit was by his side, he said.

"He was dramatic to the end dying on Christmas Day," said the Rev. Jesse Jackson, a friend of Brown's since 1955. "Almost a dramatic, poetic moment. He'll be all over the news all over the world today. He would have it no other way."

James Brown was one of a kind. Nobody else's songs had such a funky groove. He truly was the godfather of soul.
