    Default It's raining men who want you to stand up

    RIP Bobby Byrd, one of the JBs and Famous Flames

    Bobby Byrd-- singer, songwriter, and celebrated foil for the Hardest Working Man in Show Business-- died yesterday of complications from cancer in his Loganville, Georgia home, RollingStone.com reports. He was 73.

    Byrd worked with James Brown from 1953-1973, first in the Famous Flames and then the JBs. He is perhaps best known as a co-vocalist on some of Brown's most famous songs: You'll recognize him immediately as the source of all the "get on up!"s on "Get Up (I Feel Like Being a) Sex Machine".

    A solo artist in his own right as well, Byrd recorded several albums and numerous singles, most famously the oft-sampled "I Know You Got Soul".

    Brown and Byrd reunited in the years before their deaths, and Byrd performed at Brown's memorial service in Augusta, Georgia in December 2006.

    I thought this said Bobby Bare, at first.

    RIP indeed.

    "Sex Machine" to me is the funk equal to Miles Davis' "So What", Nearly 11 minutes in A# and the piece never gets even remotely tired. Brown got all the credit and that's cool, but damn, the Famous Flames were the best backing band in rock & roll history and Byrd was extremely instrumental in Brown's ascension to the top of the R & B world.
