George Clinton Fights For His Right To Funk

The father of funk has been in court, trying to reclaim ownership of songs like “Atomic Dog.”

NEW MUSIC

George Clinton Keeps The Funk Alive

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.

    Interview was fantastic. Well put together. Nice way to encapsulate a lot of output and touch on some key periods. Thanks for sharing about how you are doing and giving an update on Sly. If you are ever in Maine and want some free lobster or counseling come find me. How about some honey or maple syrup for them throats?! My office is pretty close to the airport in Bangor, Maine. I’ll be glad to take care of anyone to do with the P.
