James Brown Net Worth
James Brown net worth: James Brown was an American musician who had a net worth of $100 million at the time of his death in 2006. James Brown was commonly known "The Godfather of Soul". When he died, he had the respect and admiration of millions of fans around the world. His career, spanning many years, began in a gospel group called The Gospel Starlighters. The group eventually changed their name to The Flames, and toured (with Brown in tow) many venues in the south. The early recordings made during this time show a heavy influence from R&B artists like Little Richard and Ray Charles. From these early days, James Brown eventually evolved into a solo performer, but his music continued to grow and change.
He spanned a wide variety of genres, including gospel and rhythm and blues in the early days, to incorporating elements of funk and traditional African music into his work. In the 70s, James Brown coped with the changing trends in music by experimenting with disco, but most of these efforts failed to match the success of his earlier work, most of which is much more popular than disco is today. After many tumultuous later years, James Brown died on Christmas Day, 2006.
James Brown released 63 studio albums as well as 15 live albums and 49 compilation albums. His 1963 album Live at the Apollo was ranked#25 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 greatest albums of all time in 2003 and he also had success with albums including In the Jungle Groove in 1986 and Star Time in 1991.
