From my story on December 19, 2013...about JAMES BROWN...
'Each morning, as we drink our coffee, Steve reads to me...and we both learn about something new, usually about music or things of the spirit...it's another special time together, along with our rehearsing tunes ... getting Steve ready for gigs.
This morning, BARTLETT picked up 'The Music Lesson' a book by VICTOR WOOTEN/bass and HERE. He's one of our favorite bass guys. Steve recomends this book to all his students and we both really enjoy it too. Steve BARTLETT ON BASS started reading to me on the bottom of page 105, [just in case you want to look this up too.] AND, I will look for some more info. online 'cause this is very interesting to me.....Did you know, that after Rev. Dr. MARTIN LUTHER KING jr.'s assination in 1968, PRESIDENT JOHNSON and other government officals called upon the king of soul JAMES BROWN to help stop and to prevent spreading black rioting in Boston and across the whole country? After that, James Brown said that he was considered " the most dangerous man in the world" by the government because...'cause if he could stop a riot, he could start one...just as easily...WOW.,.. and the government kept files on many musicians, like BOB MARLEY and HERE, JIM MORRISON, ELVIS PRESLEY and HERE just because of their influence on the folks in this country.
O.K....I founds some more info. about James Brown and his ability to influence and calm folks back in 1968, after King's assination on YOUTUBE. One is called 'The Night James Brown Saved Boston' from jackhogan1 . This is all the page says: " Uploaded on Nov 24, 2008" I'll post more video links below. O.K? Jan
