Storyboard Text

  • George Clinton
  • I think a lot of people really have religious overtones of having come from somewhere. I mean, even the whole concept of religion is kind of a Alien.
  • Importance
  • When I hear music that parents hate, or older musicians hate, I know that's the new music. When I hear older people saying, 'I hate Rap or Techno' I rush to do iy
  • Accomplishments
  • I'm always surprised that I'm still around funk and people still love it
  • Musician George Clinton was born in Kannapolis, North Carolina on July 22, 1941. His music career began in a barbershop where he created a doo-wop group called The Parliaments. Clinton eventually reorganized the musicians who would become known as Funkadelic and Parliament to create new sounds and dazzling, out-of-this-world live shows with R&B chart toppers like "Flash Light," "Aqua Boogie" and "One Nation Under a Groove." He later embarked on a solo career, releasing the album Computer Games in 1982 as well as additional studio projects.
  • During the 1970's George was involved in two bands: Parliament and Funkadelic. In addition to fronting both these mighty acts on record and onstage, he wrote and produced material for both of them and drove their musical direction.
  • By 1970, George Clinton had regained the rights to The Parliaments name: he then signed the entire Funkadelic lineup to Invictus Records as Parliament. The group released one album – 1970’s Osmium – and scored a number 30 hit, “The Breakdown,” on the R&B charts in 1971. With Funkadelic firing on all cylinders, however, Clinton decided to discontinue Parliament (the name, not the band) for the time being.
