James Brown Dead on Christmas Day 2006
James Brown ca 1965 James Brown is dead at 73.
I’m so glad I got to hear him sing in person last year. He was an amazing performer.
UPDATE: Yes, he was an amazing performer. But. How do you want to be remembered at the end of your life?
Brown is survived by his partner, Tomi Rae Hynie, one of his backup singers, and at least four children two daughters and sons Daryl and James Brown II. . .
Seems like the precise number children you’ve contributed genetic material to should be one of those things that, well, ought to be fairly easy to nail down. Just for the record, if nothing else.
