It always seems like somebody famous always passes during the Holiday season. Very sad news! One of the greats that really shaped the music world over the last 50 years. It seems just like yesterday when I was in college back in the early 1970s and a radio station I listened to on a daily basis would play James Brown music all day long. He sure lived an eventful life, I don't know if he was happy at the end, but it was an exciting life either way you look at it. May he R.I.P.
