Tribute to the Godfather of Soul!

and funk and hip-hop and all of modern dance music
Quite simply, if there were no he, there would definitely be no me when it comes to music, this man created everything we listen to now

James Brown RIP

Catch my Black on Red Show this Saturday on RedFM for my 3 hour musical tribute to the hardest working man in showbusiness, the amazing Mr Dynamite himself, James Brown

Fair point but I never said he was-I'm judging him on his music and his legacy in what I know about-a lot of the greats have personal things that can't be admired-two of my own other favs, Marvin Gaye and Miles Davis, had many dislikeable traits and behaviour that can't be admired. A lot of the most talented people do unfortunately-in his defense he was aoso responsible for the many of the biggest feminist anthems of the 60's (by the likes of Lyn Collins, Marva Whitney and Vicki Anderson)-whether this was a contradiction with his personal behaviour is the question, but i'm gonna judge him on his music-thanks for the comments though folks, always good to get some feedback!

Yo this is my blog that's updated pretty much every day before 1pm Irish time

    I'm a DJ from Cork in Ireland. I work with RedFM, presenting Red Drive, The Hitlist and my specialist show, Black on Red. I'm probably best known for being one of the main hip-hop/soul DJ's in Cork and Ireland. I've been DJing in Cork since the early 90's in legendary clubnights such as Sweat in Sir Henrys, Mor Disco, Free La Funk, Yo Latino and also Jam and Jam Junior at the Savoy and the Pavilion. I've also held down long term residencies at clubs around Ireland such as Brown Sugar at the Kitchen in Dublin, U-Turn at Ri Ra in Dublin, Jazz Juice at the GPO in Galway, Thompson Garage in Belfast, the Soul Clinic, Dee-Bop, Meltdown and Mo Bounce in Limerick and i've played abroad in the United States and the U.K. on numerous occasions. I also write a music column for the Evening Echo and i'm a regular contributor to the U.K.'s Blues and Soul, the longest running black music magazine in the world. These days i run the Pavilion, a music venue in Cork, which hosts my Jam night every few Fridays also you can catch me at
