Henry Stone and James Brown
An old shot of Henry and James Brown at the Hot offices in 1997. Henry met James way back when James was just starting out and gave him some valuable advice that helped launch his career. They became good friends for the rest of James’ life. They even had a record label together called BrownStone (Get it? Brown + Stone). This photo still hangs on Henry’s office wall as a reminder of his good friend.
