James Brown: The Godfather of Soul
James Brown: The Godfather of Soul3 2 5 Author: James Brown, Bruce Tucker
James Brown: A man who played 350 shows a year at his peak. Who broke the colour barrier of 1950s and '60s pop. Who supported the Civil Rights movement through his music, playing a racially charged Boston in the hours after Martin Luther King, Jr.'s assassination and travelling to Vietnam to support black troops. Who won and lost several fortunes. And who became one of the greatest musical innovators of all time...
In his own words, this is the incredible life story of the Godfather of Soul, giving the inside story of his life and music, taking the reader on a journey from his impoverished childhood to his evolution into one of the most influential figures of the 20th century.
With photos, unmissable anecdotes about Little Richard, Elvis, Tina Turner, Otis Redding, Tammi Terrell, Michael Jackson, and many others, plus an updated introduction and epilogue and an exhaustive discography.
