Rest In Peace, Godfather Of Soul
For me, this will always be the image of James Brown that I see in my mind's eye — the whirlwind of energy and verve on the dance floor, hips pumping and feet floating across the floor without ever seeming to move. May he find the comfort that he never truly found in life. Rest in peace, Godfather of Soul.
