Live at HARD Summer 2012
Recorded at HARD Summer in Los Angeles United States
Cincinnati United States
This star-shaded visage defined a whole era of funk. The iconic Bootsy Collins and his Funk Unity Band live at HARD Summer in Los Angeles.
William _(artist-name)Bootsy Collins_ got his big break when _(artist-name)James Brown_ plucked him for the original line-up of his groundbreaking early 70s backing band, _(artist-name)The J.B.’s_, providing the trademark grooves for classics like _(song-title)Get Up (I Feel Like Being A) Sex Machine_, _(song-title)Soul Power_ and _(song-title)Super Bad_. But it wasn’t long before the charismatic _(artist-name)Bootzilla_ - armed with his ‘space bass’, elastic vocals, mischievous wordplay and outrageous sartorial splendour - would become a funk icon in his own right. Rising to the top with _(artist-name)George Clinton_’s _(artist-name)Parliament_ - _(artist-name)Funkadelic_ mothership, touching down to earth and flourishing as the leader of his own _(artist-name)Rubber Band_, this bass guitar hero’s star-shaded visage has all but defined an era of funk gamesmanship - one that continues to find fans via collabs with _(artist-name)Snoop Dogg_ and the songsmiths of _(artist-name)Yo Gabba Gabba_. _(song-title)Ahhh...The Name Is Bootsy, Baby_!
