RIP James Brown
Evidently James Brown wasn't feeling that great, as he the Godfather of Soul passed at 1:45AM this Christmas morning. He was hospitalized on Sunday, with pneumonia. Here are some good words, including a clip of him in the Blue Brothers movie. Here is an excellent recent Rolling Stone feature on The Godfather of Soul, which gives some insight on a musical genius, who was also a complicated and troubled man. Like so many other musical geniuses...

Thanks for the music, Godfather.
