George Clinton: Putting On The Atomic Dog

John Morthland, Creem, July 1983

He looks very tired – he's four weeks into a grueling (26 people traveling by bus, playing clubs and small halls) four-month tour. He also looks very happy – it's his first tour in two years, which is a long time off for a workaholic like Clinton.
