Fellas, I'm ready to get up and do my thing

R.I.P. Soul Brother Number One, Mr. Dynamite, The Hardest-Working Man in Show Business, Minister of The New New Super Heavy Funk, Mr. Please Please Please, The Boss, The Godfather of Soul

Legendary Singer James Brown Dead at 73. The Godfather of Soul passed at 1:45 a.m. this morning. He was in the Hospital for pneumonia but it is still uncertain what caused his death.

Strange, I was talking late on Sunday how I was gearing up to post an end of the year remembrance type entry covering people like Syd Barrett, Ian Copeland, Ali Farka Touré, Dewey Redman and Alex St. Clair, who had died in the year 2006. Now I can add another to my list.
