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.

I'm sure we'll be hearing all the garbage about his wife now. I heard that his accountant and lawyer locked her out of the house when she got home after he died. After being with him for several years, I hope she gets something.

He made a major contribution to music, but he was a druggie and a wife beater. I will not mourn.
