"I Feel Good," that's what singer James Brown told reporters today while walking out of the hospital where he successfully underwent surgery to treat his recently diagnosed prostate cancer.

Brown's urologist said he expects a full recovery and a full cure.

Brown, 71, was treated by Dr. James Bennett, at the Midtown Urology Surgical Center in Atlanta.

The "Godfather of Soul" is due to release his autobiography "I Feel Good: A Memoir of a Life of Soul," next month, and he doesn't plan to let his illness slow him down. Brown plans to perform a concert tour in Australia and Asia in early 2005. It's easy to see why he's referred to as [font=verdana,helvetica]"The Hardest Working Man in Show Business."[/font]

The singer plans to take the next three weeks off to recuperate from his prostate cancer surgery.
Brown, who also suffers from diabetes announced the prostate cancer diagnosis late last week. At the time, Brown said he will "overcome this," referring to his prostate cancer.
Last year Brown was honored as [font=verdana,helvetica]"one of the most influential musicians of the past 50 years," during a ceremony at the Kennedy Center[/font]
