James Brown To Float Bonds

Godfather of Soul James Brown will make a $100 million bond

offering, according to the Pullman Group, the securities company that

organized the deal. The bonds will be repaid through future publishing

and other royalties on 750 songs, including "I Got You (I Feel Good)"

and "Super Bad." Art-rocker David Bowie pioneered such offerings

in the music world two years ago with his Bowie Bonds, also organized by

Pullman head David Pullman. Since then, such artists as the heavy metal

band Iron Maiden and the Motown songwriting team of Brian Holland, Lamont

Dozier and Eddie Holland have floated similar deals.
