After 75 years of blessing us with over four decades of his music, Chuck Brown has re-
portedly passed away today. The Godfather of Go-Go music has been hospitalized since
mid-April according to Huffington Post due to the pneumonia. He died at John Hopkins
earlier today, Wednesday, May 16, 2012. Brown is undoubtedly one of the most influential
musicians that the DMV has ever seen. He create a brand of funk that Washington, D.C.
could call its own. His family is asking for privacy at this time and announcements regard-
ing arrangements will be forthcoming from the family. His family continues to be grateful
for the outpouring of love and support and requests respect.
