Yeah, he died today.


Considering I have no available news sources, I never would have known that.

73 seems to be a popular year.

Heart failure from pneumonia complications or something.

That's the cause.

Yeah, the God Father of Soul died on Christmas. Fitting?

I was really bummed to hear that. He was scheduled to do two nights at the boulevard casino (Jan12-13) in Coquitlam. I wanted to see him once before he kicked the can. The irony has yet to wear off.

It must be a real bummer to die on Christmas.

Then again, I guess he doesn't care... being dead and all.

Damn, electronic music wouldn't be the same without him.


Right, didn't he come up with the legendary "Amen Break" that's used so often in techno music? That break is the most sampled thing in the entire electronic genre, I believe.

Indeed it's sad. James Brown is dead...

He was for the funk what Kraftwerk is for techno.

Hilarious, but not very good for serious listening?
