Back in the mid 60's a music revolution took place. My white suburban friends were listening to the British Invasion. It changed pop music for sure. I did listen to some of that music but it wasn't the only music that a city boy in an integrated neighborhood in Pittsburgh heard. WAMO was often on my radio and I was as likely to be listening to James Brown as the Beatles.
If this white boy ever plays funky music, at least in part, James Brown inspired it. Thank you James. I hope that you have finally found peace.
