According to sources in Washington D.C., The Godfather of Go Go has passed away at the age of 75.
Brown’s musical career began in the 1960s playing guitar with Jerry Butler and The Earls of Rhythm, joining Los Latinos in 1965. He still performs music today and is commonly known in the Washington, DC area. Brown’s early hits include “I Need Some Money” and “Bustin’ Loose”. “Bustin’ Loose” has been adopted by the Washington Nationals baseball team as its home run celebration song, and was interpolated by Nelly for his 2002 number one hit “Hot In Herre.” Brown also recorded go-go covers of early jazz and blues songs, such as “Go-Go Swing”, “Run Joe”, and “Stormy Monday”.
