Yes, he also played an important role in the development of Funk, Groove, amongst many genres I usually listen to. I sincerely didn't think he'd die this soon, but also never though he'd last this long being as crazy as he was. Getting drunk and drugged frequently being 70 is quite dangerous (there's an interview with him completely drunk, probably in YouTube), but I believe Brown probably died happy with his legacy and lifestyle. It's pretty sad, but I don't think his music will ever die in the next centuries. And that's what matters, his time here ended, and James did his job pretty well.
