The hardest working man in show business takes his last bow

James Brown is dead at 73.

Though I’ve never been one for raving about musicians, this is one man that I have loved since childhood. The Godfather of Soul was a living legend to me, particularly after The Blues Brothers became one of my favourite movies.

He was also very politically outspoken – he once said that “When you hate, you blind yourself. When you hate, you can’t communicate.” He lived hard, and was generally known as a drug user and heavy drinker, but his charitable and political side is less well known.

I’m going to turn up the stereo, and blast out a tribute to the MAN.
