About the Author

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 forty R&B hit singles (including three at #1) and recording three platinum albums. Ben Greenman is a bestselling author who has written both fiction (most recently, The Slippage) and nonfiction (most recently, the hip-hop memoir Mo' Meta Blues, cowritten with Questlove). He lives in Brooklyn and rarely leaves.

Reviews

"From the barbershop to the Mothership, from doo-wop to hip-hop, Dr. Funkenstein's tale is filled with honesty, insight, and a whole lot of rhythm goin' round. With this book, George Clinton gives up the funk and then some. The Bomb!"--Alan Light, former Editor-in-Chief of Vibe and Spin magazines
"A perpetual conceptual moving target, George Clinton has always been more about the dogs than the dogma, and his ideas are always layered deep in the 24 track mix. In this insatiably readable memoir he finally parks his Mothership and tells the tales that the funkateers have wanted to hear for years."--Rickey Vincent, author of Funk: The Music, the People and the Rhythm of The One
"People will come to this book looking for druggy tales and eccentric stories, and they will not be disappointed. However they will also encounter a highly intelligent, visionary man who happens to have an encyclopedic knowledge of pop music from doo wop to hip hop. P-Funk worked because George Clinton knew how to weave all the threads together."--Nelson George
"Clinton's irrepressible spirit, eloquence, and musical acumen flow full-force through this candid, hilarious, outrageous, poignant, and resounding chronicle of perpetual creativity and hope."--Booklist
"Clinton has always proven himself a one-of-a-kind wordsmith."--Chicago Tribune
"The funk pioneer has led a life that will make you laugh, cry and wince."--New York Post
