About Funkadelic

Funkadelic furthered the notions of Black rock begun by Jimi Hendrix and Sly Stone, blending elements of blues, soul, funk, and psychedelia. Led by George Clinton, the band pursued album statements of social/political commentary, but Funkadelic's success nevertheless paralleled that of the more commercial sister group Parliament, especially in the late '70s when interplay between the bands moved their sound closer to a unified P-Funk style. Funkadelic hit its stride with acid rock extravaganzas like Maggot Brain (1971). By Hardcore Jollies (1976), Funkadelic had gelled with cornerstones like bassist Bootsy Collins and keyboardist Bernie Worrell. "One Nation Under a Groove" (1978) hit number one, as did another funk classic, "(Not Just) Knee Deep" (1979).
