    Default "Godfather of Soul" dies aged 73

    James Brown, the dynamic, pompadoured "Godfather of Soul," whose revolutionary rhythms, rough voice and flashing footwork influenced generations of musicians from rock to rap, died early Christmas morning. He was 73.

    Brown was hospitalized with pneumonia at Emory Crawford Long Hospital on Sunday and died of conjunctive heart failure around 1:45 a.m. Monday, said his agent, Frank Copsidas of Intrigue Music.

    A very sad loss - a great singer, and a great 'preacher' in the Blues Brothers.

    Never liked him much myself - but he is definitely an influence to a lot of music and artists I do like
