Calm down, Twitter! Despite chatter today to the contrary, Chuck Brown is not dead. An email from the Godfather of Go-Go’s manager didn’t screw around: “Just rumors,” writes Tom Goldfogle.
Brown has been sick for several weeks and canceled a handful of gigs. He’s still scheduled to play the Howard Theatre on June 29.
More on how he’s doing, well, as soon as we know.
Update: The Washington Post talked to Brown’s daughter Cherita Whiting, who says, “It’s nothing life-threatening. He’s just getting some much-needed rest.” She didn’t disclose details of Brown’s illness.
