He's no longer the hardest working man in show business.
He beat the odds, I never thought he'd live this long.
Too bad.

One of my heroes. As a young lad I would play his stuff at obnoxious volumes, until my dad came home.

Yeah, I'd say that's about all the power he has right now,
I wonder if the techno hit from 10 years ago "James Brown is Dead" will make a comeback now.

Get up.
Now, get on up!

Stay on the scene . . .

Everytime I hear James Brown I can't help but think of that Dead Milkmen song RC's mom.

I saw him live at a Riverbend festival in Chattanooga in the mid 90s. He kind of phoned it in, but even with him being off it was still a great show. Anybody who is still singing about hot pants at that age gets my respect.
