The Godfather Is Dead. Long Live The Godfather.

James Brown passed away earlier today at the age of 73. In addition to being the Godfather of Soul, a music pioneer who basically gave birth to disco and funk which in turn begat hip hop, and generally one of the coolest dudes to ever walk the earth, he was a big huge Georgia Bulldog fan.

Vince Dooley with JB back in the day, wishing he had soul &
was superbad enough to do interviews with his shirt unbuttoned

He wrote a song called Dooley's Junkyard Dawgs, and PWD posted a sweet video a while back of him performing it at the Cocktail Party one year while rocking an all red jumpsuit. Hold on... it (thanks PWD - you sir are the Man).

I agree with PWD - there are too many
awesome things in this 3 minutes to count

It's no wonder we went something like 147-6 against Florida before Spurrier arrived - we had the freaking Godfather working his mojo for us. A massive loss for the music world. If The Big Payback isn't in your top 100 songs of all time, then something is wrong with your list. RIP JB.
