I was fortunate to have met Mr. Brown several times. I taught 'Film Studies' to one of his children and on the occasions he would visit the school, everyone stopped in their tracks. He was a force. And generous. He put me on the guest list to see his performance with George Clinton at the 9:30 Club (2005?). It was an awesome show. Long live Chuck Brown. Long Live Go-Go.
