Brothas be, "Yo' Like George, Ain't That Funkin' Kinda Hard on You?": A Memoir

 
9780751554724: Brothas be,

Legendary leader of Parliament and Funkadelic, George Clinton is unique in pop music - and his story is like nothing you've ever heard before. Growing up in 50s New Jersey, Clinton was obsessed with doo-wop and R&B. Nothing unusual there. But how many kids like that ended up playing to tens of thousands of rabid fans while wearing a diaper? How many of them built a spaceship, complete with light and sound effects, and landed it onstage during concerts? How many of them put their stamp on four decades of pop music, from the mind-expanding sixties to the hip-hop-dominated nineties and beyond? Just the one. So what does an older, wiser, more sober George Clinton do? He tells his story. Now, finally, after fifty years in the business, Clinton is ready to deliver the whole P-Funk saga. It's a story without compare: the musical innovations, the rock-and-roll debauchery, the ups and downs of his career. More to the point, it's a story told by the man who made it happen, and told in his own unique style, which combines an almost photographic recollection of the events of his life with an impish sense of humour and a philosophical bent. There's no one like George Clinton, and no one better prepared to tell the tale of a half-century of innovation, triumph, disappointment, addiction, contradiction and - above all - funk.
