James Brown

And back to celebrities, as if Saddam has never been executed. James Brown gained many search queries due to his (untimely) death last week. On Google Zeitgeist, Brown is first this week.

Death is, so say the cynics, a very good promotional tool. However, it is not so clear that Brown needed that. In his life, Brown filled the headlines with sensational lifestyle. His death made him, at least for a week, talk of the town, and people remember now his good music. The San Jose Mercury News, for example, writes that "James Brown may ultimately have been more influential than Elvis".
