George Clinton On Keeping The Funk Alive With Parliament-Funkadelic | GRAMMY Salute To Music Legends
George Clinton's decades-long, funky-as-hell impact on music is inescapable. From his sprawling '70s funk records with the Parliament (which evolved into the Parliament-Funkadelic) to his collaborations with Prince, Kendrick Lamar, Flying Lotus and many more, to his oft-sampled groovy beats, it's hard to imagine modern music without Clinton.
At the 2019 GRAMMY Salute To Music Legends, George Clinton & the Parliament-Funkadelic were celebrated with the Recording Academy's high honor, the Lifetime Achievement Award. Don't forget to watch their dynamic performance and the rest of the magical show on Oct. 18 at 9 p.m. on PBS (check your local listings).
