BIOGRAPHY:




TRIVIA:
  • Was a friend of 'Elvis Presley' (qv).
  • US Secretary of State General 'Colin Powell' (qv) appointed Brown to be the first US "secretary of soul and foreign minister of funk", but said the job description for the post had not yet been drawn up. (December 2003).
  • In live shows, Brown would sometimes add the "I got ya" lyric in a song when he caught a musician making a mistake.
  • Coordinated his dance moves to lead his band. Each movement was actually an instruction to the band.
  • In 1991, the Techno group L.A. Style released a highly irreverent and controversial single entitled "James Brown Is Dead". There were two songs quickly made in response: "James Brown Is Still Alive" by Holy Noise, and "Who the F*** Is James Brown?" by Traumatic Stress.
  • Some of his most popular songs include "Please, Please, Please" (1958), "I Got You (I Feel Good)" (1965), "It's A Man's Man's Man's World" (1966), "Cold Sweat" (1967), "I Got The Feelin'" (1968), "Get Up (I Like Being A) Sex Machine" (1970) and "Living in America" (1985).
  • Insisted on using the title Mr. or Ms. for everyone in his band. He felt it was a sign of respect if people called each other by their proper title.
  • His funeral was officiated by his good friend, Rev. 'Al Sharpton' (qv).
