George Clinton
Guy Lochhead, 10/09/10
American musician and funk pioneer. As a teenager, Clinton sang in a doo wop group called The Parliaments. This group altered and changed until finding huge success in the ’70s as Parliament and Funkadelic, playing a style of music that came to be known as ‘P-Funk’. This music became the sample-foundation for the 90s’ ‘G-Funk’ hip hop. Clinton went solo in 1981. He allows fans to record his shows for non-commercial use. Clinton is an important figure in the history of popular music, but he’s not particularly inspirational. I get the same sort of “whaaa?” thing that I get from a lot of Big Drugs Fans. Song/album titles like ‘Hey Man…Smell My Finger’ and ‘Do Fries Go With That Shake?’ make me feel gross. Also, he’s pretty sexist. Also, I like funk that’s all loose and light. P-Funk is like weed limb heaviness.
