R.I.P. Chuck Brown

From the Huffington Post:

WASHINGTON — Chuck Brown, the legendary “Godfather of Go-Go,” has died, according to Washington City Paper and other media reports.

The local D.C. musical giant, born in Gaston, N.C., and known for his group’s 1979 chart-topping hit “Bustin’ Loose,” was 75.

Earlier this month, Brown’s family revealed that he had pneumonia. He had canceled a planned performance at the newly reopened Howard Theatre in April due to health concerns.

According to the Associated Press, Brown died at Johns Hopkins University Hospital in Baltimore.
