Father of Go-Go Passes

He carried a deep voice and was usually seen in his staple round-rimmed black hat with his wavy hair and dark shades hanging below.  Known as the “Godfather of Go-Go,” Chuck Brown, died May 16th at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore.  He was 75.

His manager, who said he died from complications of sepsis, confirmed his death.

The local D.C. musical giant, born in Gaston, N.C., and known for his group’s 1979 chart-topping hit “Bustin’ Loose.”

Earlier this month, Brown’s family revealed that he had pneumonia and he recently cancelled a planned performance at the newly renovated Howard Theatre in April due to his health concerns.
