I was so sorry to hear about James Brown who was referred as "The Godfather Of Soul" had died at 73. I read in the Los Angeles Times this morning.

I was never a big fan of most of his music, but I did like "I feel good." That man sure could move!

All of his mug shots were interesting, I'll say that. It makes me mad that he would hurt his wife, or anyone else. I pray that he set things right.

I despised him as a person, but I loved him as a musician. It is a sad day for music.

My husband works in the music industry and a few years ago we were at a music showcase in Chicago. The record rep wanted to know if we wanted tix to see James Brown at the House of Blues and to go backstage and meet him. I said "**** no" and my husband didn't want to go either. The record rep could not believe we'd pass up to meet the "hardest working man in show business". I was never into him, his music was just OK IMHO. Plus he was a drug user, criminal and wife beater.
