James Brown Passes
Posted on: Monday, Dec 25, 2006
One of the most influential performers of all times has left us this Christmas. James Brown – The Godfather of Soul was 73.
I believe that James Brown was of the people who defined the future of popular music. Without him, popular music would not have been the same. All of the soul and funk that followed him was changed for ever. Then later, his realisation that it was the break beat that was the most exciting part of the tune defined dance music in later years.
In tribute, here’s a fabulous YouTube clip from the 1970s.
