James Brown influenced music in so many ways, in several genres. He is the father of funk, which holds a huge part of my musical heart. His music brought about others like George Clinton, Parliament, Funkadelic, Bootsy Collins, Sly & the Family Stone, etc. His music is constantly sampled in rap (Funky Drummer for example). And he also is one of the best soul singers imo. So much respect for him. Plus, the man could move!

So much of my music has been inspired by this man. Soul. Funk. Early hip-hop.

Larry Graham is like the perfect combo of bass and pimp.

Bootsy Collins and the “Space Bass”. With five freakin’ pickups. His funk’s so mean.

The reason for my tumblr name. I love Parliament and any funk with punch and a groove. I like to feel music, not just hear it.

"Put a glide in your stride and a dip in your hip,And come on up to the Mothership.”

Parliament- “Mothership Connection (Star Child)”
