Yahoo LAUNCHCAST song of the day
Song:Give Up The Funk (Tear The Roof Off The Sucker)
Funkmeister George Clinton once had a group called The Parliaments but he lost the rights to the name. He continued on with Funkadelic but regained the name rights and started Parliament. Both groups had the same core members of Clinton, keyboardist Bernie Worrell & bassist Bootsy Collins. Parliament had an outrageous sci fi stage show. The music was the best funk anywhere. And Clinton added horn players Fred Wesley & Maceo Parker from The JBs just to make Mothership Connection even more funky. The music still holds up very well twenty years later.
