Because I was Raised On The Funk

because for some of us who were raised on the funk when someone says the commodores or ewf is funk it degrades and dilutes what we believe (and know) funk is. its like saying “catholics and baptists are the same, what difference does it make?” might as well throw disco music in as funk too. …

My Discovery of Parliament / Funkadelic and a Funk Pure

Probably summer 1977. As I remember it was in the dining room of my babysitters house. I was sitting at the table when I heard a sound I had never heard before. It was the keyboards of Mothership Connection. I immediately asked “who is that?” The response was thats “Parliament, its been out, it’s old” (it had been out maybe …

ASL, Weapon Of Choice, The Toledo Show – Mar 9, 2001 – The Templebar, Santa Monica

this was a good night. had never been to the temple bar before so all the abstarcted- impressionist paintings of blackmen all over this white club in the heart of santa monica intrigued me. the place has a cozy, spiritual darkness to it and lounge furniture like couches to kick back in. the smell of …

Hanging Out With Mr Michael “Kidd Funkadelic” Hampton

I’m not often starstruck anymore  (sorta) though I still get very excited. I was probably literally glowing when I met then Senator Barack Obama. But having the opportunity to hang out and work with my childhood heroes (the people who make the music I love so much) presents a whole other thing. It’s cool until it gets weird for …

(m)Y-Town Ohio Loves Them Some P-funk (2002)

  Signs of P-funk in my hometown Youngstown (Ohio funks da’best) circa 2002. This was on the eastside, I grew up on the southside.  Sometimes I wonder why it’s in me so deep and I realize I was raised on it. There is a reason why the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame is in …

George Clinton & P-Funk Do San Francisco

Having seen that P-funk thang over 100 times in different parts of this country (experiencing P-funk in Europe is one of my few remaining desires in life), I have learned to appreciate the differences each region brings. D.C. had groups of black males partying together in tight rhythmic bunches (here in California brothas  maintain personal space). I’ve watched the percentage of …
