Kill 'em and Leave
Kill 'em and Leave Searching for James Brown and the American Soul By McBride, James Book - 2016

I found this to be a repetitive, elliptical one-dimensional book. It's desperately in need of editing yet there's almost no meat on the bone. Interviews are scarce & most of the narrative consists of the author's ruminations on the well-documented violence inherent in white-dominated society & the capricious unfairness of the exploitative music industry. While his environment surely shaped James Brown there's a lot more to any person as there should be to a biography.
