James Brown (1933 - 2006)
I almost missed this.
Rest in peace, James Brown. He was a fantastic American entertainer, and I'll never forget his appearance in Rocky IV with "Living in America."
He was also the subject of a song by L.A. Style, in which the title, "James Brown Is Dead," came 13 years too early.
Rest in peace, James. Forgive L.A. Style for playing Nostradamus in a retarded way. Of course he'd die on Christmas. He's James Brown. Forgive him, Jesus!
James Brown, baby, the Hardest Working Man in Showbiz!
