James Brown (May 3, 1933 – December 25, 2006)

So the Mothership has come to collect. On Christmas no less. Even his death has a kind of rhythm.

James Brown is dead, but James Brown will never die. As long as human beings still listen to the popular music of the latter 20th and early 21st centuries, they'll be hearing James Brown. He's everywhere, especially now that hip-hop has become a global music with a reach even greater than rock and roll.

I'd say rest in peace, but that was never JB's style. The funk goes on, and wherever James is now, they're all gonna have a funky good time.
