R.I.P. CHUCK

It has been a year since the man who filled Washington DC with his legendary Go-Go music for so many years  passed away. I won’t say he left us because he never will. As one of the thousands of “Chuckaholics” Chuck Brown will live forever.

Family, friends, and fans of the man known as the “Godfather of Go-Go” we still love you and thank you for you musical contribution. Brown’s legendary Go-Go music played venue all over the world – can’t you still hear the crowds shouting “Wind me up Chuck”?

“We definitely love the city for the support, because he is the city,” another one of Brown’s daughters, Kaykay, said. “He’s like our Elvis.” In death, as in life, Brown’s memorial carried his style. D.C. native and boxing legend Rock Newman said that Chuck looked regal. “He’s in a gold casket in front of purple-lit drapes with his guitar by his side,” Newman said.

One last time I say, “Wind Me Up, Chuck” and may you Rest in Peace. And that’s my Thought Provoking Perspective…
