npr.org – On Parliament-Funkadelic And A Less ‘Squeaky-Clean Picture’ Of Blackness
I want to take a moment to remember and appreciate Bernie Worrell, the former keyboard star of Parliament-Funkadelic, who has died after being diagnosed with late-stage lung cancer.
George Clinton is the front-man and mastermind recognized for building the sprawling musical ensembles of 10-15 musicians at a time known as Parliament-Funkadelic. But Worrell, a co-founder of those groups, chose to play away from the spotlight. Compared to Clinton, he seemed downright humble —and by most acounts he really was humble.
