February 26, 2010, Mark your calendar, ride a bus, get on a train, grab a taxi (I'm a fan of public transportation, especially when seeing shows), and get inside Ram's Head Live with 400 other funk worshipers and let George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic do it to your earhole. Seriously, Clinton is getting up in the years, (almost 70 years old now), and though I don't wish any harm to the man, the legend, this may be the last time to see the real Parliament-Funkadelic.
Granted, $40.00 is a lot to pay for a single show, even if Parliament gives us 90+ minutes of funkalicious, but it's only money and experiences are lifelong. It won't be too long now when the only way to hear the Mothership Connection is on the vinyl turntable in the solitude of your own home. Clinton and Parliament are icons of early rock, soul, funk, rap, and much more, and the ticket price may be worth it. In the immortal words of Funk, it's hard to dismiss The Awesome Power of a Fully Operational Mothership.
Clinton is one of the last remaining pioneers of funk, one who's outlived numerous drug problems. Rick James – dead/cocaine. James Brown – Dead. Curtis Mayfield – gone. Kool and the Gang – who knows. George Clinton – this month in this city, bringing the original Parliament Funkadelic with him, at least the ones who are still around. Besides, this crowd will be a melting pot of diverse music lovers ranging just about all genres of music, and being part of that is something special all it's own.
