As if that didn’t give the man a lifetime’s pass to the Super-Funk hall of fame, he went on to join George Clinton and Parliament, together creating what are often cited as the quintessential P-Funk albums.
So reads the first chapter of a CV that never slows up and never quits, the opening salvo for a man who’s massive influence on the world of music resonates to this day and can never be over-stated.
