Owww – “I Feel Good”!!! Once again the Power of FUNK is exemplified in advertising. James Brown’s iconic music is the backdrop for L.L. Bean’s new spot…
James Brown’s biopic “Get On Up” hits theaters today. In the spirit of FUNK, I wanted to share an interview I did with him for those who might want to hear the actual voice, of “The Godfather of Soul.” Then I figured, why not include three other masters, of the FUNK genre. Having the honor to speak with these men were not only a highlight of my career in music, but in life, as they provided the soundtrack to it (click on photo above for full view).
Chadwick Boseman, the star of the movie “42” based on the life of Jackie Robinson, has taken on the role of James Brown for the biopic “Get On Up.” The film chronicles Brown’s life from poverty to his rise to mega success, as he became one of the most influential musicians in history. World renown as “The Godfather of Soul”, Brown is unequivocally “The Pioneer of FUNK.”
First I have to give a HUGE THANK YOU to my cousin, friend and sister in FUNK Loreen for her tireless efforts to make this James Brown interview and all the others posted possible.
