I wore a skirt and top. You will see people dressed both up and down as some people may have just walked up and bought a ticket , while others have planned for months and made a date of it. .

It was an awesome show w/a beautiful venue to showcase all the p-funk that is George Clinton & his crew. Yes, he is missing his trademark rainbow dreads & he doesn't have much of a voice left, but the mothership band he captains holds him up....continued

Parliament - 3.5 of 5 (rapper wanna be's keep your back up singer jobs, lead vocal is not your gift!)
George Clinton - scraping for a 2 of 5
Yoshis - 4 of 5 (for lack of coat check!)

Quotes & Highlights

Check out George Clinton at his website, or see a video of Parliament-Funkadelic at Yoshi’s in November 2010 on YouTube.


Think of George Clinton and you’ll likely conjure an image of a crazy black man with rainbow dreads and garb befitting a galactic shaman literally barking at phat bottomed girls with a sub-atomic “WOOF!” This lovable nutcase is the legendary and internationally renowned grandfather of funk and the founder of the Parliament-Funkadelic MOB, taking the sonic innovations of James Brown and Sly Stone to both outer space AND Neptune while selling millions of records and concert tickets in the process. Quiet as its kept, however, George Clinton’s initial approach to the ladies was crooning (when he wasn’t cutting hair) as the leader of a standup vocal group he formed in `55 called The Parliaments, emulating the doo wop and love songs that were popular when he was in diapers (well…he STILL wears those on occasion).

What is there left for the North Cackalackee-born grandfather of funk to do after five decades of rockin’ steady on the one? He can dip back to an era of sweet street corner soul that was his initial inspiration, take some folks back into time while blowing their minds.

Almost 70 years young, George Clinton has several other projects in the hopper, including a salute to Motown and a solo album by longtime P-Funk All-Star siren Belita Woods. The master is also mindful that most of the folks whose songs he’s singing on Radio Friendly are no longer here, but he has no intention of joining them in Soul Heaven anytime soon. “I ain’t going nowhere,” he declares. “I feel like I’m starting over right now…for real!”
