An early birthday present for the Godfather of Go-Go, Chuck Brown, who turns 75 this month — CNN.com has put together a nice piece on him, and the genre he created.
While the package sticks to the expected go-go talking points — the sound is dependent on percussion and call-and-response, it's unique to D.C., it never went "national" — it's still pretty cool that a CNN camera crew took a trip out to Takoma Station.
Check out the video, featuring interviews with Brown, television host/radio personality Donnie Simpson, go-go fans, and others, below. (H/T Take Me Out to the Go-Go)
