Recording as both Parliament and Funkadelic, George Clinton revolutionized popular music during the ‘70s and ‘80s with an avant-garde sensibility that continues today.
For over five decades, his unparalleled sound has been cited as the DNA of Hip Hop and Urban Culture. As a visual artist, Clinton’s body of work is as adventurous and eclectic as his music.
The iconic Mothership (centerpiece stage prop) for Parliament-Funkadelic is on permanent display at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington DC.
