The 25th of December will forever bring bittersweet memories to lovers of soul music worldwide. James Brown passed away on christmas day in 2006 has left a huge void in the music landscape since.
I will also remember it because I had tickets to go see him perform in Montreal with my dad three days after he passed away. I missed my chance of what would have been my first time seeing the Godfather. He died at the age of 73 and although he didn’t die on a stage he was still touring a lot, and that’s how it should have been.
