Disciples of Funk

While I admit that only part of this day-late-bonus-FNMV is animated, in it’s defense, it is Bootsy, so the live action parts are closely related enough to qualify.

Bootsy Collins is a bassist and a veteran of both James Brown and Parliament-Funkadelic. This tune is with Bootsy’s Rubber Band. I’ve always had a taste for heavy funk and he knew how to bring it. Drop some Johnny Guitar Watson and Ohio Players into the playlist and I’m set.

In 1976 Collins, Catfish, Waddy, Joel Johnson (1953-2018), Gary “Mudbone” Cooper, Robert Johnson and The Horny Horns formed Bootsy’s Rubber Band, a separate touring unit of Clinton’s P-Funk collective. The group recorded five albums together, the first three of which are often considered to be among the quintessential P-Funk recordings. via
