Legendary “Godfather of Soul” James Brown died on Christmas Day 2006. Four funerals followed, all well covered by the media, before the singer was laid to rest………..
……..in his drawing room!
It seems Brown failed to stipulate where he wished to be interred and squabbling relatives can’t agree. Meanwhile, James Brown rests in his coffin, in a chilled room of his South Carolina mansion, awaiting legal decisions. So far, he has remained patient, but if the legal battle continues much longer he may just leap up out the box and yell:
“Fellas, I’m ready to get up and do my thing, I wanta get into it, man, you know… Like a, like a sex machine, man….. Movin’… doin’ it, you know……”
Poor James! Someone really ought to have suggested he make a will.
