James Brown is dead at 73 – leaving the world a whole hell of a lot less funky on this christmas day.

I wish I could post one of the tracks from the James Brown christmas album, about which I had a very strange conversation just the other day. Of course, I can’t find it right now.

This is a sad day. God knows we all needs a lot more of the funk any day of the year.

Hit Me, godfather of soul.
