    Chuck Brown, known as the "Godfather of Go-Go," a genre blending funk, jazz and soul and other musical forms, died Wednesday, his manager said.
    Brown, 75, died at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, manager Tom Goldfogle said. The performer, whose career spanned four decades, died of multi-organ failure from sepsis.
    "Go-Go" originated in Washington, D.C., in the 1970s.
    Brown, with the Soul Searchers, had a big hit with "Bustin' Loose." The guitarist and singer became a familiar figure on stage with his brim hat and sunglasses.
    According to CNN affiliate WJLA, Brown had recently postponed numerous shows due to failing health.
