“Ο σκληρότερα εργαζόμενος άνθρωπος στις show business” είναι φυσικά ένας από τους κυρίαρχους του May born musicians club. Ιδού ένα podcast αφιερωμένο στον James Brown, τον καλλιτέχνη που [εξακολουθεί να;] σημαίνει τόσο πολλά για τόσους πολλούς ανθρώπους.
Τον έχω δει δυο φορές ζωντανά. Η πρώτη ειδικά, early ’90s σε ένα μαγαζί στην παραλιακή, ήταν η πιο τρελή συναυλιακή εμπειρία της ζωής μου. Δεν μπορώ να φανταστώ πώς θα ήταν να τον βλέπεις από κοντά στα ’60s και τα ’70s…

“The hardest working man in show business” is of course one of the dominant figures of the May born musicians club. I made a podcast – homage to James Brown an artist who [still?] means so much to so many.
I’ve seen the man live twice. The first one, especially, in the early ’90s, was the most insane live experience in my life. I just can’t imagine how it must have been watching him back in the ’60s or the ’70s…
