    Unhappy

    Ditto, Rick...He had his share of troubles (mostly self induced), but made some of the best music ever put to record. I got to see him perform live about 20 years ago, and it was a very entertaining show...he wasn't known as "The Hardest Working Man in Show Business" for nothing...

    RIP James...

    Another one bites the dust - inevitable but sad.

    His legacy however will live on long. R.I.P.

    Yes, his style of music made an impact on future music from that time forward.

    I will always remember his performance in Rocky 4, where he sings "Living in America." He was definitely an American origional.

    I bought brand new copies of his albums with Please, Please, Please, I Feel Good and Papa's Gotta Brand New Bag when I was a freshman in high school. A legend. I remember when he was billed as James Brown and the Famous Flames. If you want to hear a great version of the old standard Night Train find the one that was done in the late 50s early 60s by James Brown and the Famous Flames. The sax section will blow you away. RIP.
