From today's headlines on DemocracyNow.org:

Body of James Brown to Lie “In Stage” at Apollo Theatre

And finally here in New York, a crowd of people gathered outside the B.B. King Blues Club Tuesday to pay tribute to the Godfather of Soul, James Brown. Brown passed away Monday at the age of seventy three. He had been scheduled to perform at B.B. King’s on New Year’s Eve. James Brown fan Michael Cason spoke outside the club.

Michael Cason: "What you've got to realize about James Brown coming back up during the sixties, during a lot of racial tension, James Brown, say it loud, I'm black and I'm proud, gave a lot of African-American Negroes, back during that time, a lot of pride."
On Thursday, James Brown’s body will lie in state – or rather, lie in stage – at Harlem’s legendary Apollo Theatre. The Apollo is credited as the theatre that gave Brown his show business start. Fans will be able to file past Brown’s casket on the Appolo stage for one last look at the man who revolutionized popular music. The Reverend Al Sharpton will be officiating Brown’s funeral. Rev. Sharpton said: "His greatest thrill was always the lines around the Apollo Theater. I felt that James Brown in all the years we talked would have wanted one last opportunity to let the people say goodbye to him and he to the people."

here is a factoid. my dad's first job out of law school back in the sixties was at a small entertainment firm in ny that represented james brown. that must have been the source of my love for hhk.

I went to see Questlove spin at SOBs last night. He did a 2hr set dedicated to James and the songs that were sampled from him. It was sick. So many joints have been inspired by this man.
