James Brown tribute post
The “Godfather of Soul", James Brown, has died at the age of 73 in Atlanta.
James Brown was known for hits including I Got You (I Feel Good), Papa's Got a Brand New Bag and Living in America, he went by “Mr. Dynamite,” “Soul Brother No. 1,” “the Minister of Super Heavy Funk” and “the Godfather of Soul,” and he was all of those and more.
Many performers, from Mick Jagger to Michael Jackson, imitated James Brown’s stage moves like the spins, the quick shuffles, the knee-drops, and the splits.
He contributed much to the music of our time and will be missed.
