L.A. Style called it 15 years too early but while everybody was sleeping early on Christmas morning, the Godfather of Soul, Soul Brotha #1 passed away. James Brown is most famously known for only two songs according to all the racist oldies radio stations across the USA but had a string of far better funk jams in the '70s like "Mother Popcorn," "King Heroin," "The Payback," "Super Bad," "Brother Rapp/Ain't It Funky Now," and the endlessly sampled "Funky Drummer." James Brown was hospitalized with pneumonia on Sunday.  He was 73.
