Season's Greetings (tinged with sadness)

It's Christmas time, with mistletoe, wine and X-Factor winner Leona Lewis taking the number one spot in the charts - well done to her, and I'm sure that her future music career will be longer lived than previous reality TV music show winners such as Hear'Say and Michelle McManus.
A very sad piece of news is that music industry legend, and 'Godfather of Soul' James Brown has sadly passed away in the early hours of Christmas morning. Brown, whose 50 year career has generated such hits as 'Sex Machine', 'Living in America' and 'Say it Loud, I'm Black and Proud' died of Pneumonia in a hospital in Atlanta, Georgia. He was a true entertainer, a 20th Century showbiz legend, and will be sorely missed. RIP James Brown.
