:( What a shame. Just the other night I got to enjoy his music once again in a re-run of the Blues Brothers. Magic.

He shall be sorely missed, but never forgotten as his music will continue to entertain and bring enjoyment for a looooong time to come.

Onya James!

I had a chance to see Mr. Brown at a casino show not too long ago. For a 70+ plus man, he still ripped it up proper and put on an amazing show, filled with his sizable music catalog.

He'll be dearly missed..

Didint he get done for putting cameras in teh womens toilets of one of his clubs?

He claimed something he wanted to catche the thief nicking his toilet paper, or am I barking up the wrong tree?

That was Chuck Berry.

Although James Brown was no stranger to the Judicial system at various points his life.

He was certainly a fine songwriter and performer, and his live show was something else... great band, great songs, great performance. Glad to say I saw him, sorry I won't get the chance again.

There comes a time in everyone's life when they realise that most of the musicians they admire are dead.

I'm there.

CNN carried the Agusta funeral at James Brown Arena live. It was quite an amazing affair, complete with the drama of Michael Jackson taking the mike for a few words. (His first word: "Hello?" At least he didn't follow that with "is this thing on?". He then made a nice little speech that he handled quite well.)

Al Sharpton surely brought a smile to many when he beseached Gabrial to open the gates wide, "because although he's a small man, he walks with a big swagger."

Such a shame. I was sad to hear the news about his death on Christmas Day :(

I saw him performing in Hyde Park a couple of years ago. He put on a great show.
