Dec 26th - RIP Reverend James


The Right Reverend James Brown; The Man, The King, The Legend - Rest in Peace. I sure am sorry to see you go. There weren't many true American originals left and losing you is a drag. Godspeed.

I was shocked when I heard about it but now he'll always be able to sing "I feel good" and actually mean it.

Humm... I never found the man very sympathetic... but what a guy can give that he never had? Love??? At least, he did some good music...
He was to perform in Montreal on January 3... and I wonder what is pushing them, at that age, all of those 60 year's old and more performers, to go over their physical capacities... Vanity? Pride? Money? or just their love for the scene?
BTW... I'm moving... new blog is at SeaRabbit Blog. You are welcome... ;-)

I found out about his death around the Christmas dinner table. Dinner was good, but that was really sad. My dad was a big fan.
