Hey, now you know we cannot forget about Chuck Brown's closest friends, the producer James Purdie, he was the producer of the God father of GO-GO Chuck Brown's first GO-GO album "Bustin Loose". James passed away in 2008 or 2009 not sure which year and I do know he was very ill during the years before because I use to work at a nursing home where he was staying and even then, he was blind in both eyes and he knew allot about music and was one of the best Producers out of DC. Rest in Peacee Mr. James Purdie......You are one of the first founders of Go-Go which the first album was a hit and went nation-wide throuugh out the U S. You are truly a piece of GO-GO History.... and will be missed as well..... MUCH LOVE PEACE & SOUL to MR. JP......
Earl known as Denny of S E Washington DC

R.I.P. James Purdie!
Thanks Earl, for giving us all a history lesson on James! Bustin Loose was, is, and always will be one of the baddest GoGo hits of all time! Thank you for your comment and your support Earl!

Footz, what can you say about one of the most underated drummers around. Redds, one of the funkiest, if not the funkiest Guitar player. I missed that Funk ya body Redds that RE use to do. Boolah was all of it on Guitar. Trouble without Dyke, is like Earth Wind and Fire without Maurice White, they keep going on, but you know something is missing. All the rest of us still here, make the best of your life and don't forget who gave you your gift and life. RIP my brother.
Funky Wood--Shady Groove and Founder of Ovation Band
