George Clinton

In the swirling mists of the musical firmament, where the luminous stars of funk glitter and dance, there exists a luminary whose brilliance has cast a transcendent glow over the genre for decades. Today, on July 22nd, 2024, we at Grateful Web bow our heads and raise our voices in jubilant celebration of George Clinton, the enigmatic architect of Funkadelic and Parliament, the maestro of the cosmic funk odyssey.

George Clinton is an American treasure. As one of the foremost innovators of Funk, Clinton is the mastermind behind the legendary Parliament/Funkadelic, creating a uniquely identifiable and timeless art that has lifted Funk from what was once considered a simple style to an internationally recognized and respected musical genre. His incredible ingenuity has earned George Clinton and Parliament/Funkadelic their rightful place in music history: an induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and recipients of the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

By his own admission, George Clinton is a freak, and in the best possible way. James Brown may be considered the godfather of soul music, but the 81-year-old Clinton must be regarded as the Patriarch of funk. His legendary concerts are the freakiest mash-up of rock, jazz, soul, funk, and hip-hop music that have endured almost as long as Paul McCartney has performed Beatles songs.

One of the last surviving members of the Triumvirate of American Funk Godfathers, George Clinton, brought an army of Funk-inspired musicians to the new YouTube Theater in Inglewood, California. Along with James Brown and Sly Stone, the 82-year-old Clinton is considered one of the founders of the Funk music genre. The concert was the final lap of the One Nation Under a Groove Tour, billed as George Clinton and P Funk’s farewell tour.

The funk was alive at Riverfront Live in Cincinnati on Sunday, June 26, when George Clinton brought the One Nation Under A Groove Tour to town.
