I know James Brown is dead, but it’s his birthday today, May 3, so let’s celebrate the life of the Godfather of Soul.  I only met the legend one time, and if you can believe it, I had a moment all alone with him.  He asked me if I could hang with him for a few minutes (Um… YEAH!) and then a camera crew showed up to tape a segment of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.  James Brown asked if I would be in the segment with him and of course I said yes.  He asked me about my family and he was SO cool.  I signed a release for the segment to air and when it finally did, I was cut out of it entirely!  Ha!  But I walked away with a souvenir from the experience – James Brown’s autograph.  In addition to writing “I Feel Good,” he signed the autograph for me and my family!  Too cool, according2g.  I know he had many problems with the law and was not a very nice person to his many wives, but I had a really great experience and I’ve never forgotten it.
