Concert Review: George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic Live at the Cubby Bear (Thursday, 5/10/12 in Chicago)
Lakeview made their funk the P-Funk Thursday night as The Mothership descended upon the Chicagoland area once again...
At over seventy years of age, George Clinton shows little sign of slowing down.
Ever the innovator, he's worked tirelessly to educate young artists about copyright laws, is engaged in lawsuits that have the potential to change the way the industry deals with online royalties and copyrights and has even gone so far as to work in conjunction with Congressman John Conyers, Jr. (U.S. Representative from Michigan) on "The P-Funk Initiative" (H.R. 848), a bill aimed at protecting artist's rights.
And while so many musicians (young and old) struggle to try and figure out how to embrace the internet as an artist, George Clinton once again showed his ability to stay ahead of the curve recently completing a successful, online Indiegogo campaign to finance the restoration/preservation of his recordings as well as a series of studio upgrades.
He recently completed a mixtape with hip-hop artist Aleon Craft and luckily he still finds the time to tour.
To the tune of about two hundred tour dates a year.
