Bootsy Collins

John Abbey, Blues & Soul, June 1976

"SAY MAN, do you think these shades make me look just a little like Bootsy Collins? Eh?" Well, they ought to. Yep, you guessed it kids, it's Bootsy himself – he of incredible Rubber Band fame.

But with the Rubber Band he's stretchin' out an' doin' his own thing.
