Happy Birthday James Brown!



Edd's Heads: James Brown

Born on this day 1933; 'The Godfather of Soul'....'The Hardest Working Man in Showbusiness'....'Soul Brother Number 1'...'Mr Dynamite'.....and the funkiest damn brother who ever walked the face of the earth.....ladies and gentlemen, Mr James Brown!!!

My missus (the lovely Irene) and me were lucky enough to attend his last ever concert in the UK which took place at the O2 Academy in Glasgow, Scotland on the 25th of October 2006. Despite his age, he still managed to put on an astounding, high-energy show with his super-tight funky band! It was a real pleasure to witness a true legend before he passed away. And he honestly had the brightest, whitest teeth I have ever seen in my life!  Rest in Peace, Godfather.
