About George Clinton
a youngster, George would bounce around New England and the American South, spending time across North Carolina, New Jersey,
and Florida. He would find an interest in music manifest itself from a young age, singing in various local groups that drew
from members of his community and eventually splitting his time between working at a barber salon and singing classic doo
wop hits with an act titled The Parliaments. Despite rocky beginnings and various name changes, the band would create fusion
of the funk sounds of James Brown with the soulful rock beats of artists like Cream and Jimi Hendrix. The dynamic vibes that
came from George and the band would be undefinable, finding widespread success throughout the late 60s and 70s that splashed
into the funk, R&B, and soul music scenes. Aside from his success with Parliament-Funkadelic, George constantly pushed
his own career forward with credits as a producer for various record labels and a songwriter for the soul funk sensation of
the 60s and 70s, Motown.
George made a tentative leap into solo work during the 1980s, though he still held close ties
with his former band members who often collaborated with George in both songwriting and performing. His solo career would
skyrocket, releasing four albums in as many years and invading airwaves all across the country. His firmly unique style and
musical mastery would catch the eye of some of the greatest performers of the era and of the next generation, with a fledgling
but yet unproven rock band named the Red Hot Chili Peppers approaching George for help in producing their debut album.
George Clinton musical phenomenon wouldn't slow down in the 90s, with him becoming one of the elder statesman of the funk
music and the burgeoning hip hop scene. He would work with various prodigies of the hip hop movement, including Tupac, Outkast,
Wu Tang Clan, and Ice Cube. He would also try his hand at acting, appearing in multiple cult classic hits including Kenan
and Kel's Good Burger, 1999's The Breaks, and in the popular adult swim cartoon series Space Ghost Coast to Coast. Today,
he is still releasing original material, producing with the hottest acts in existence today, and keeping constantly in the
public eye with appearances at various award ceremonies and events, including as a judge at the Independent Music Awards.
George's breakout solo work would be 198'2 Computer Games, which would climb to the #3 position
on the US R&B charts and make a respectable showing at #40 on the US Billboard 200. A self-produced masterpiece, the album
was rained down with critical acclaim from various media outlets including perfect or near perfect score from AllMusic, Billboard,
critic Robert Christgau, Yahoo!, and Spin, along with a mention on Slant Magazine's Best Albums of the 1980s list. The album
spawned some of his most memorable hits that are still popular decades later, including "Atomic Dog", "Loopzilla" and "Get
George Clinton's most recent release, George Clinton and His Gangster of Love, would be a collaborative cover
album that is a look back on George's long history of musical success. The album features special appearances from multiple
legends in the business, including longtime friends the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Kim Burrell, and System of a Down. The album
would receive three out of four stars from USA Today, and contained addictive renditions of "Gypsy Woman" featuring Carlos
Santana, "Never Gonna Give You Up", "Fever", and "Heart Trouble".
George remains one of the most
successful, most sampled, and most recognized musicians in existence today. He has received some of the most coveted accolades
that a musician can win, including the Urban Icon Award and induction into the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame. He has also
put his fame and success towards environmental causes, by raising funds for educating future generations on a sustainable
