/Imagespeople/JamesBrownPeteTalk108w.jpg James Brown, (1933- 2006).
"James Brown was always the first to help those who needed help - especially - the seasoned unknown talent." Pete Allman.
••• James Brown, who was most offten referred to as "The Godfather of Soul", "was an American entertainer recognized as one of the most influential figures in 20th-century popular music," says Troy Cory, of VRA TelePlay, and producer/director of the legendary Hollywood interview between Mr. Brown, and Pete Allman in 2004 at the House of Blues.

••• "Not only was he a prolific singer, songwriter, bandleader, and record producer, Brown was a seminal force in the evolution of gospel and rhythm and blues into soul and funk," said Troy, "he left his mark on numerous other musical genres, including rock, jazz, reggae, disco, dance and electronic music, afrobeat, and hip hop music."
••• The dynamic, "Godfather of Soul," whose rasping vocals and revolutionary rhythms made him a founder of rap, funk and disco as well, died early Monday, his agent said. He was 73
••• Brown was hospitalized with pneumonia at Emory Crawford Long Hospital on Sunday and died around 1:45 a.m. Monday, said Pete Allman.
••• Along with Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan and Little Richard, Brown was one of the major musical influences of the past 50 years
••• At least one generation idolized him, and sometimes openly copied him. His rapid-footed dancing inspired Mick Jagger and Michael Jackson among others. Songs such as David Bowie's "Fame," Prince's "Kiss," George Clinton's "Atomic Dog" and Sly and the Family Stone's "Sing a Simple Song" were clearly based on Brown's rhythms and vocal style.
••• Brown began his professional music career in 1953 and skyrocketed to fame in the late 1950s and early 1960s on the strength of his thrilling live performances and a string of smash hits. In spite of various personal problems and setbacks, he continued to score hits in every decade through the 1980s. In the 1960s and 1970s Brown was a presence in American political affairs, noted especially for his activism on behalf of African Americans and the poor.
••• Brown was recognized by a plethora of (mostly self-bestowed) titles, including Soul Brother Number One, Mr. Dynamite, the Hardest-Working Man in Show Business, Minister of The New New Super Heavy Funk, Mr. Please Please Please, The Boss, and the best-known, the Godfather of Soul. He was renowned for his shouting vocals, feverish dancing and unique rhythmic style.

James Brown

By Pete Allman


This is one interview you can't miss. It's one of my favorites - not only because James Brown is one of the greatest R&B performers around, but because my good friend - entertainer, producer -- Troy Cory, was there directing the action. Everything was perfect, even down to the legendary insert of Byrd shouting -- in that preacher-like tone of his -- "James Brown! James Brown! James Brown! James Brown!"
