The father of funk has been in court, trying to reclaim ownership of songs like “Atomic Dog.”
After 67 years, the dreadlocked king of funk can still bring the house down. Clinton’s new album ditches his signature Funkadelic style for Motown-influenced covers of old love songs. Here, he discusses his life on the road with some special guests, including Sly Stone.
If James Brown is the Godfather of Soul, George Clinton is the Crown Prince of Funk. Now past retirement age, the ringleader of Parliament and Funkadelic continues to inspire new generations.
