TotallyRadical: James Brown usually averted this by sticking to his roots and making straightforward, relatively unchanged old-school Funk in his entire career. But seriously, when his 1979 album "The Original Disco Man" got onto the scene with of course, Funk's watered-down, polished, more easily danceable cousin Disco, it pretty much ruined James' career until the mid-80's, when "Living In America" came out.

Sadly died of pneumonia in 2006, on Christmas Day no less. But his legacy lives on and in 2014, a biographical film, ''Get On Up'', was made about his life.

* BackFromTheDead: A famous stage act has Brown faking a heart attack and being carried or lead of stage by a roadie or fellow musician, only to return in triumph and new energy.


Added DiffLines:

* NotQuiteDead: A staple of his live act. Brown would collapse to his knees from apparent exhaustion, and one of his backup singers would drape a cape around his shoulders and help lead him off stage. But after a few steps, Brown would throw off the cape and stagger back to the microphone in triumph and new energy.

* FollowTheLeader: Inspired countless soul, R&B, funk, hiphop and rap acts, but also reggae, afrobeat and dance music in general. Also a huge influence on live performing. Music/MickJagger and Music/IggyPop are just two artists who borrowed a lot from Brown's stage presence.

* {{Sampling}}: Brown's music has been sampled so much that the Guinness Book Of Records considers him to be the most sampled musical artist in the world. Take him away and the entire HipHop genre would lose a lot of its catchyness.
