We take his music for granted don't we? Even if you recognize James Brown's greatness, how often do you ponder the consistency and breadth of his output? He, more than anyone, was capable of mastering evolving styles over the years without missing a beat, and backing it up well past middle age with dynamic live performances. You can throw all the clichés in there, the hardest working man in show business, soul brother number one, the godfather of soul, and so on, the bottom line is that the guy had it, whatever it is, even with Christmas music, and he did a lot of Christmas music. Even that sounded badass.
