We Gotta Have That Funk


The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum's Black History Month programming continues tonight with an appearance by Parliament-Funkadelic bassist Bootsy Collins. The legendary performer -- a member of the Hall of Fame -- began his career with James Brown, laying down the funky bass riffs to many of the Godfather of Soul's best-loved (and most-sampled) hits. Collins later formed his own Bootsy's Rubber Band, which took the P-Funk sound and aesthetic to even funkier heights. Along the way, he helped create the bottom-heavy sound favored by hip-hoppers and club kids alike.
Wed., Feb. 22, 7 p.m.
