papa's got a brand new body bag
your songs will always be sung by men who have just had sex with beautyfull women
and rightly so. fabulous singer and performer.
most inappropriate thing ever!
certainly made me giggle.
It's a shame that the one time I saw him (Glastonbury three years ago), he was, frankly, not very good (too much band soloing, not enough James) - but look at the videos of performances in his prime and there was nothing like him. RIP.
Listen to Nite Versions. You'll understand.
This news just brought down a really lovely day for me.
I only really have Live At the Apollo but that is not only the greatest live album ever made by anyone (simply no contest) but one of the best albums of all time. I really wanted to see him play but always missed out.
One of the most influential musicians in the world as well (not just in hip hop and soul).
Shit. The Godfather of Soul has died.
one of the best live artists ive ever seen. and one of the finset greatest hits records ive ever owned!
what a legend.
...that listened to the song 'james brown is dead' after he died?
