George Clinton and The Parliament Funkadelic, Music Hall
Recording both as Parliament and Funkadelic, George Clinton revolutionized R&B during the ’70s, twisting soul music into funk by adding influences from several late-’60s acid heroes: Jimi Hendrix, Frank Zappa, and Sly Stone. The Parliament/Funkadelic machine ruled black music during the ’70s, capturing more than 40 R&B hit singles, including three number ones, and recording three platinum albums. Clinton’s mix of jazz, rock, pop, classical, and gospel is a musical style unlike all others, so much so that it eventually developed into its own identifiable style called P-Funk. musichall.org
