The Hardest Working Man in Show Business Moves to That Great Gig in the Sky

Merry Christmas to you and yours from your TMD family. Thanks for listening. Thanks for your support. And especially, thank you for loving the music. So, it is a bittersweet Christmas morning for music lovers everywhere- you may have heard by now that James Brown died.

While, of course, it's a sad benchmark..the Godfather of Soul's music celebrates life, energy and something burning inside us all. He just had IT! James Brown channeled the human condition in his growl, his wail, his grunts, his feet. He lived it all- the spiritual, the carnal, the jubilation...the blues. Here's a great link on the history of a music icon as important and as American as Elvis and Chuck Berry, from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Peace and love from everyone at TMD.
