Was talking with a couple friends last night about what it must have been like for folks the first time they ever heard James Brown. People must have lost their minds... I remember the first time I listed to the James Brown's Funky People compilations in college. Man, those things used to destroy the dancers. Still do. Now I know James has millions (billions?) of fans worldwide, but we just sort of take it for granted. His music and influence are so much a part of our culture. But seriously, no James, no funk. No funk, no Hip Hop. Yeah, there was a time... BEFORE JB!!! Hard to believe.
Um, he could dance too. :)
