Did You Know?

  • As a young man, James Brown wanted to play professional baseball and become a professional boxer. Music saved him
  • At the age of 6, James Brown was sent to live with his aunt Honey Washington, who ran a brothel and sold moonshine for a living
  • James Brown was once a cotton picker, coal scrounger and shoeshine boy. He also danced and sang to attract clients to his Aunt’s place of business

James Joseph, or rather it should have been Joseph James but there was a mix-up on his birth certificate, Brown is rightly haled as the founding father of funk and a leading 20th century pop music figure. His nickname is the Godfather of Soul. Starting out as a gospel singer he joined a group called the Gospel Starlighters later to become the Flames. This brought him to fame.

James went on to great stardom in the 1960s. Our favourite records of his include Get Up (I feel like being a) Sex Machine and I Got You (I Feel Good). Of particular note is Papa's Got a Brand New Bag because of the wonderful comic pastiche from Peter Cook and Dudley Moore where Peter plays a very straight interviewer who is trying to understand the lyrics. Dudley, or Bo Diddly as he is called in this sketch plays the foil, as ever, to Peter's commentary. He also played the piano and sang of course.
