Default James Brown died this morning...

http://www.cnn.com/2006/SHOWBIZ/Musi...own/index.html

ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) -- James Brown, the legendary R&B belter, a singer and songwriter who created a foundation for funk and provided the roots of rap, a man of many nicknames but a talent that can only be described as one of a kind, is dead.

Brown died early Monday at Atlanta'* Emory Crawford Long Hospital of congestive heart failure, his agent said. He was 73.

Brown was in Atlanta for a dental appointment when he fell ill and was admitted to the hospital over the weekend for treatment of "severe pneumonia," said his agent, Frank Copsidas.

"It appears what happened is that he did die of a heart attack as a result of his pneumonia," Copsidas told CNN Radio.

Even as a kid i always dug the king of soul. "THE BIG PAYBACK" was my favorite, along with "THINK 73". This is his arrest photo when he led a car chase through my state! (That was cool as hell!)
