    I think that GoGo is so underated, my uncle used to live in S.E. DC and took me to my first GoGo in '87 I was 14 and it Changed my Life, especially being a drummer. To me DC is the Mecca of a beat. 87 was the first time that I saw Chuck Brown live , but my uncle had been kicking that GoGo forever. I know Im late but it made me mad that 2 other music Icons passed the same day as Chuck ,you heard all over the news about them and nothing about the man who started a movement called GOGO. Miss ya man and shouts out to DC for giving us the GoGo swing. I have a GOGO band here in Birmingham called " Party Rockers" gogo band. The media may try to contain it in DC, but the world knows GOGO, dont get it mistaken !

    I moved away from the DFW back in 86 when I joined the military. Now I'm retired and still playing my Go Go music all the way down here. I still have a PA tape from the Capitol Center. .Don't mean a thing if you ain't got the go go swing...RIP Chuck
