Much respect to Rick James

After watching a live concert by Rick in Germany three times in a row, I had to write a little something about him. This man is the best. When he sang “Big Day” I almost wanted to stand up and sway. From wikipedia:

“Rick James (born James Ambrose Johnson, Jr) (February 1, 1948 – August 6, 2004) was one of the most popular artists on the Motown label during the late 1970s and early 1980s. James was famous for his wild brand of funk music and his trademark braids, sporting them well before the style was popularized. As time went on, James was given the unofficial title The King of Punk-Funk.”

All hail The King of Punk-Funk.
