Rest in soul, James Brown

Sad news for the music industry, Mr James Brown has passed away. He may not be influencial to many on here (i dont know, he may be) but its sad whenever we lose a figure from the music industry.

RIP Godfather.

He was the king of soul and he'll be missed. His appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show was one of my favorites of his. RIP James Brown.

A lot of modern day musicians were influenced by him, weather they knew it or not. Sad news.
