George Clinton, the Reigning Hippie of Funk
Amy Linden, The New York Times, 27 October 1996
WHEN JERRY Garcia died last year and the Grateful Dead disbanded shortly thereafter, the question arose as to who would inherit the band's legacy of freewheeling, anything-goes music. Jam bands like Phish, Blues Traveler and God Street Wine, with their hippielike following of young fans, are certainly among the contenders. Perhaps the most unlikely candidate is the legendary George Clinton and his P-Funk All-Stars.
