Go-Go godfather Chuck Brown dies at 75

France 24
Wednesday, 16 May 2012

Chuck Brown, the widely acknowledged "godfather" of the Go-Go funk music style that flourished in Washington in the 1980s, died Wednesday in hospital, his manager and family said. He was 75.

The gravel-voiced guitarist behind such floor-fillers as "We Need Some Money," "Go-Go Swing" and "Run Joe" was recently stricken with pneumonia after an operation to remove a blood clot, the Washington Post reported.
