Speaking of Great Music

Almost forgot, we caught George Clinton and the P-Funk All-Stars this weekend at the International Festival in downtown Houston.

They played extended versions of quite a few of the hits, including Flashlight, Aquaboogie, and Atomic Dog. The lineup included quite a bit of new stuff too, which is as funky as it ever was. Click here for a pretty weak review from someone who has no clue the significance of P-Funk's role in modern music and live performance. I'd write my own if I had time, but suffice it to say that the show was off the chain, and had young, old, black, white, and everybody in between bouncing for 2 hours.

Not bad at all for a $10.00 ticket to the festival. And for anybody who happened to be there; Oh Yeah, BOOTY!

P-Funk uncut funk the bomb! For, Funkadelic finally got a write up in RollingStone magazine about 3 years ago admitting they were some of the top Funk/Rock guitarist follwing Jimmy Hendrix!

Ensayn1 - P-Funk was definitely off tha chain, then and now. Funny how it took Rolling Stone 30 years to realize that these guys rock, and always have. Blackbird McKnight put sown some serious solos during this concert too.
