Filed in Arts and Entertainment by on September 22, 2018

Did someone mention James Brown at the TAMI show? I saw this at the Warner Theatre.  This was definitely the highlight of that amazing concert film. Girls in the theatre were screaming as loud as the girls at the concert:

    Was never a fan. I know he’s great and all, but I find his music about as enjoyable as a root canal.

  2. Maceo, take Alby to the bridge…

      Yeah, I’m gonna need a bridge if I don’t get that root canal.

      James Brown never met a chord progression he liked. I don’t think he ever met a chord progression. All his “songs” are just vamps. Not an ounce of creativity to any of it. Without his live delivery they’re boring. And he was a complete piece of shit, so there’s that. I acknowledge he was talented and all, but of the 60,000 items on my iTunes, not one is by James Brown, and he isn’t missed.

      I do have a couple of Maceo’s albums, though.

      • Well, he virtually invented funk. There’s that.

        • Alby says:

          Oh, I don’t deny his greatness. I just don’t enjoy it.

          This performance, in particular, is outstanding — in large part because he found out he wasn’t closing the show and was furious that the Rolling Stones would perform after him. He set about embarrassing everyone for that decision.

        Wow Al, you have no appreciation for talent or taste, but we won’t go there. He re-invented himself in 1985 with Living in America and won a Grammy to boot! But, everyone has their opinion.

          You just went there, and congratulations, you learned how to use Google.

          More pointless personal insults will get you banned in a trice. You want to insult me personally, show yourself or be gone.

          I also don’t believe for one second that you like James Brown.
