A D.c. Legend, Always On The Go-go

Wednesday, April 25, 2007

The new hardest-working man in show business? D.C.'s own Chuck Brown, who embarked yesterday on a two-week blitz to launch his new CD, "We're About the Business." The Godfather of Go-Go got up way early (the 72-year-old legend usually sleeps until noon) for an hour-long, rock-the-house lunch concert at the Hard Rock Cafe -- the kind of open-bar release party that typically starts at midnight or later. While most Washington workers were eating takeout sandwiches at their desks, 500 fans (most of whom had won tickets through local radio promotions) were sipping beverages -- and looked suspiciously like they were playing hooky.

Wednesday, April 25, Noon ET The Reliable Source Join Post Reliable Source columnists Amy Argetsinger and Roxanne Roberts to talk about Chuck Brown working overtime to promote his new album; the Kuwaiti ambassador's wife expecting a surprise baby; Kim Basinger saying she didn't leak those Alec Baldwin bad-daddy voicemails; and Scary Spice's maybe-baby by Eddie Murphy lucking into a funny last name -- Murphy Brown.

Brown, wearing his trademark fedora and sunglasses, played nonstop; everyone else was dancing and shouting lyrics by heart.

"Tired yet?" he cried.

"Hell, no!" they shouted.

"Want some more?" "Hell, yes!" they answered.

Brown's full-court publicity press calls for a big show Friday night at the 9:30 club, as well as daily autograph sessions at local book and record stores. Yesterday's party wound up with Brown performing his signature "Bustin' Loose," signing CDs and imploring everyone to toss away those illegal copies and give him some love. "God bless each and every one of you," he said with a grin. "And if you got a bootleg, go to the store and buy the real one anyway."
