A man of many names: The hardest working man in show business, King of the one nighters, Soul Brother #1, the sex machine ...but everyone knows who they mean. James Brown: The Godfather of Soul. Since his first chart-topper in 1956, he's outlived, outlasted, and outperformed all rivals. He is the funk-and-soul innovator and rap's driving spirit. His dazzling stage shows are legendary. Now James Brown tells his own story, just as he plays his music: loud, proud, and soulful. From his dirt-poor childhood in an Augusta brothel to wealth and world fame and his recent incarceration, James Brown takes a unique look behind the closed doors of poverty, segregation, politics, and the music industry. With photo inserts, brilliant anecdotes about Little Richard, Elvis, Tina Turner, Otis Redding, Tammi Terrell, Michael Jackson, and many others, plus a new updated introduction and epilogue and an exhaustive discography. "Fine blend of social responsibility, cranked-up ego, and pronouncements on his own music and its place in the world"Amazon. com
