I enjoyed lots of his music. His influence was great. Now he is pushing up daisies. He died on Christmas day.

Let us remember James' music in this thread. Post your thoughts.

Sad new indeed.. :cry: Nobody could dance like him back in the days. He was Michael Jacksons biggest dance influence, and just look at Michael now! He really was the godfather of soul. A wonderful entertainer and musican. Rest in peace James Brown.

Peace,

He was an original and a classic. Even if you couldn't understand him half of the time.
