Description

George Clinton stands alongside James Brown, Jimi Hendrix and Sly Stone as one of the most influential artists to emerge from the 1960s.

Set against a backdrop of Black Power, socio-cultural revolutions and epic drug consumption, George Clinton & The Cosmic Odyssey Of The P-Funk Empire charts Clinton’s seven decade career from barbershop doowop to redefining The Funk with his legendary Mothership extravaganzas, before his spectacular fall and subsequent solo career.

Written through the eyes of a lifelong P-Funk fan, George Clinton & The Cosmic Odyssey Of The P-Funk Empire also celebrates the musicians who accompanied Dr Funkenstein on his remarkable journey.

It is illustrated by first hand interviews with Clinton, Bootsy Collins, ‘Bigfoot’ Brailey and other P-Funk associates,collaborators including Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie and key cultural figureheads including Afrika Bambaataa, Last Poets, the Fugs and MC5.
