    Funk star Rick James dies at age 56
    L.A. police say singer died of apparent natural causesBREAKING NEWS
    The Associated Press
    Updated: 3:31 p.m. ET Aug. 6, 2004LOS ANGELES - Funk legend Rick James, best known for the 1981 hit “Super Freak,” died Friday, apparently of natural causes, police said. He was 56.


    James died at 9:45 a.m. at a residence near Universal City, said Officer Esther Reyes, a Police Department spokeswoman.

    “He died apparently of natural causes. We learned of his death after responding to a radio call,” Reyes said.

    After his big hit, James’ fame began to fade as he became embroiled in drugs and legal problems.

    James was convicted in 1993 of assaulting two women. The first attack occurred in 1991 when he restrained and burned a young woman with a hot pipe during a cocaine binge at his house in West Hollywood. He was free on bail when the second assault occurred in 1992 in James’ hotel room.

    James was sentenced to more than two years in state prison.

    In 1997, he released a new album, but a year later he suffered a stroke while performing at Denver’s Mammoth Events Center, derailing a comeback tour.

    In 1998 he also underwent hip replacement surgery.
