Gone Country 3: George Clinton
Alongside James Brown, Clinton is considered to be one of the most sampled musicians of all time. Rapper Dr. Dre sampled most of his beats to create his G-Funk music era. Clinton is widely recognized as a funk legend and is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Clinton recently released George Clinton and His Gangsters of Love (Shanachie Records) featuring special guests the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Carlos Santana, Sly Stone, The RZA (Wu Tang), Shavo Odadjian (System of a Down), Kim Burrell, El DeBarge and P-Funk, among others. This year, Clinton also proudly celebrates the 40th anniversary of his early pioneering group -- the Funkadelics.
