James Brown RIP

The "Godfather of Soul" has passed away at 73 years old this morning after checking into the hospital this weekend with pneumonia. Brown died of heart failure at 1:45 a.m. Monday. His agent said he felt fine at the hospital and that he still planned on being on stage in NY on New Years. As his friend Jesse Jackson said: "He was dramatic to the end — dying on Christmas Day... Almost a dramatic, poetic moment. He'll be all over the news all over the world today. He would have it no other way." Our thoughts are with his friends and family.
