DEAD: ON THIS DATE

James Brown (aged 73)
-American singer, songwriter, musician, and recording artist


James Joseph Brown (May 3, 1933 – December 25, 2006) was an American singer-songwriter, dancer, musician, record producer and bandleader. A progenitor of funk music and a major figure of 20th-century music and dance, he is often referred to as the “Godfather of Soul”. In a career that lasted 50 years, he influenced the development of several music genres.

DEATH: On Christmas Day, 2006, Brown died at approximately 1:45 am, at age 73, from congestive heart failure, resulting from complications of pneumonia. Bobbit was at his bedside and later reported that Brown stuttered, “I’m going away tonight,” then took three long, quiet breaths and fell asleep before dying.
