Saw George Clinton and the P-Funk play last night at the Starland Ballroom (in NJ) and just like last time I saw him, it was fucking amazing. His guitarist Blackbird sounds like Zappa and he keeps it all nice and tight. I told him he was amazing and that he reminded me of Frank Zappa and he responded to me today on myspace:
"By the way FRANK ZAPPA is one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE GUITARISTS!!!, I ALSO SAW JIMI HENDRIX ON YOUR SITE , THAT WAS MY GUY TOO !!!! THANK YOU FOR THE COMPLIMENT , We’re leaving town now THANX again !!!! BBMc"…
You couldn’t help but get high at the show, everyone smokes grass there. It was amazing to see how many young people love George, all these teenagers were yelling "we want the funk!!!" in unison. George is like a big teddy bear and just makes everyone smile. George is one of the best artist to see live in concert…if he is heading your way, you really should check him out, it’s quite the experience. LOTS of love in the air and the music is AMAZING.
George is so friendly to the people back stage and signs autographs and poses for pictures with everyone, he is just one of the nicest stars I have ever met. I love giving him HUGE hugs! He is like a Funk Daddy! In the dressing room, I showed them all that blog I wrote about them last year and they loved it.

George had his Grand daughter on stage for a while rapping, she looked to be about 17 years old.. she is about to release her first album and he is letting her do her thing during his show. He lets a lot of his buddies come up and jam, I think that is so cool.. sharing the love, sharing the spot light, the man hasn’t a selfish bone in his body.. LOVE YA GEORGE!
