ATLANTA - James Brown, the undeniable "Godfather of Soul," told friends from his hospital bed that he was looking forward to performing on New Year's Eve, even though he was ill with pneumonia. His heart gave out a few hours later, on Christmas morning.
He was a talented performer in his own right. You look at the **** talent out there now and say to yourself, "who's going to replace people like that?", certainly not studio-created idiots like Brittany Spears and Justin Timberlake who have zero musical talent.
