Get On The Good Foot: A James Brown Quiz

majicmartyMajicmarty on 12/28/2006

Trivia Quiz James Brown was one of the most influential singers ever to take stage in America, with a wide assortment of personalities ranging from the Jackson Five, Sly and the Family Stone and Booker T and the MGs to Miles Davis giving him credit for swaying their careers. The Hardest Working Man in Show Business, his string of hits began in the 1950s and continued to his death on Christmas Day 2006.

Brown was in Barnwell, S.C., in 1933 and raised across the border in Augusta, Ga., where he picked cotton, shined shoes and committed petty crimes through his childhood. An armed robbery conviction in 1948 placed him in a juvenile detention center, where he began a lifelong friendship with singer Bobby Byrd, and his life began to change.

Byrd helped him secure an early release, and the pair joined Byrd's sister Sarah The Gospel Starlighters before venturing off on their own with an R&B group, the Avons. The Avons evolved into the Famous Flames, eventually signing a recording contract with the legendary King records.

The group's first recording was the legendary "Please, Please, Please" and released under the name of James Brown with the Famous Flames. Immediately, a star was born, as the tune climbed to the No. 5 spot on R&B charts.

The following is a little quiz that will test your knowledge of Brown and his legacy. If you like this one, check out my other quizzes on leading luminaries of blues and rhythm-and-blues. Good luck!
