They call him Bootsy, baby!

Bootsy with protege, Freekbass

Calling all P-Funk fans. PBS is airing a special called Parliament Funkadelic: One Nation Under a Groove as part of the series Independent Lens this week. Check your local listings for time and day; in Cincinnati it will air on WCET Sunday, October 16 at 11 pm.

Anybody not born under a rock knows by now that the bassist for P-Funk was a young man born in 1951 in Cincinnati, Ohio by the name of William Collins. While he still lives here and works out of his own home-based recording studio, mentoring other promising young bassists like his protege Freekbass, he answers to the name of Bootsy, baby!
