R.I.P James Brown...
I went to see him once in concert, in 1998. He kept the crowd waiting for two hours before he appeared. He was OK, but I'd been too annoyed that he'd showed such disrespect to people who'd turned up specially, just to see him. Such diva behaviour never failed to piss me off.
I noticed that there's been very little blogged about his death. I'm wondering if this was because of his colourful past? Or perhaps his death just didn't affect bloggers?
His death came as a shock to me, I must admit. But then again, I was brought up listening to his music.
He was more sinner than saint, but I still hope he's able to rest in peace.
