Rose is the first person caught up in the revolution that I was a fan of. We used to watch his interview show at least once or twice a week for the better part of a decade.
I'm a big fan of James Brown and Ike Turners work. People have told me that I shouldn't listen to Ike because of what he did to Tina but that would pretty much remove all the best Tina albums and a few seminal works in rock and R&B that Ike did solo. I don't think most people are even aware of what an abusive man James Brown was. I'm just not pure enough at heart to walk away form the work. I wonder if people will abandon the end products of all the scuz buckets that are taking their fall now a days, or will the work stand on it's own merits?
