After seeing this man play several times I can say that he will be missed. Put on a hell of a show and created a genre of music indiginous to the Washington,DC area. Shame I'll never get to hear him say "Sho' you're right!" live again.

RIP Chuck Brown

Just heard the news today. Huge loss. I was raised on Chuck Brown and Go-go music in general. Creating a music genre speaks volumes but Chuck Brown's influence goes beyond Go-go and into the Hip hop genre. I would be willing to bet that his music was one of the most sampled by hip hop producers especially in the 80's/90's(with the exception of James Brown). I know for a fact that Ashley's Roachclip was sampled atleast 30 times, probably by your favorite hip hop artist lol. Also, IMO there is no MC as the "talker" in a Gogo band - not even in hip hop. Chuck Brown was a true legend. I am going to miss him.

"Wind me up Chuck!"

Sometimes., I believe

Whether you liked their music or not, there's little arguing (if any) that Adam Yauch, Chuck Brown, and Donna Summer each defined-or redefined- their genre of music. And, in turn, music as a whole. They will be missed by many

I couldn't believe it..still kinda numb over it. I grew up in N.E and N.W., would see and Chuck and the Soul Searchers almost every weekend and frequently during school nights at the Masonic Temple on U St.

Another part of my youth has slipped away into a memory.

Wind me up Chuck...
