GEORGE CLINTION

WHO...

Recording both as Parliament and Funkadelic, 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 over 40 R&B hit singles (including three number ones) and recording three platinum albums.

BACKGROUND

Born in Kannapolis, NC, on July 22, 1941,

Clinton became interested in doo wop while living in New Jersey during the early ’50s

Basing his group on Frankie Lymon & the Teenagers, Clinton formed The Parliaments in 1955,

The Parliaments released only two singles during the next ten years,

Frequent trips to Detroit during the mid-’60s – where Clinton began working as a songwriter and producer  

The Parliaments finally had a hit with the 1967 single “(I Wanna) Testify” for the Detroit-based Revilot Records

The label ran into trouble and Clinton refused to record any new material. Instead of waiting for a settlement, Clinton decided to record the same band under a new name: Funkadelic.
