GODFATHER OF SOUL IS STILL READY TO ROLL AT AGE 63

James Brown, the Godfather of Soul, celebrated his 63rd birthday with a heavy metal guitarist, a country music group and a pack of pro football players.

The eclectic mix gathered Friday at the birthday bash, where Brown thrilled everyone - and surprised no one - by claiming center stage and performing with his guests."I feel good about it," Brown said of his birthday. "I have a manner of everything being correct all the time."

Joining him were rock guitarist Slash, the country group Sawyer Brown and seven National Football League players including Ricky Watters.
