About the Author
Soul Brother Number One, the Godfather of Soul, the Hardest Working Man in Show Business, Mr. Dynamite—all of these titles describe just one man. James Brown is arguably the most influential African-American in popular music in the past half-century and one of the most dynamic, exhilarating performers of our time. Brown is the recipient of the American Music Awards Award of Merit, a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, and the Lifetime Achievement Award of the National Association of Black Owned Broadcasters. When the music industry decided to create a Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame, Brown was one of the first 10 musicians inducted.
