Happy Birthday George Johnson of the Brothers Johnson!

Happy Birthday to George Johnson of the Brothers Johnson, born May 17, 1953.

To the public, the Brothers Johnson appeared to come out of nowhere in 1976, topping the charts with the infectious dance hit "I'll Be Good To You" and landing monster hit after monster hit for the next half decade.  But brothers George and Louis Johnson paid their dues before hitting the top and continue to influence musicians more than two decades after their peak.
