George Clinton & the P-Funk Allstars
at the Roxy in NYC - 7/10/00



I arrived at The Roxy a little late (at 10:50pm) and caught P-Funk doing a funky version of "Let's Take It to The Stage/Take Your Dead Ass Home". P-Funk was really, really hot on this night, whipping the funk-hungry fans into a serious frenzy!!!!! The highlights of this show were:

1.     The drumming was tight & funky (thanks to Ron Wright) during "Tear The Roof Off The Sucka".

2.     "Up For The Down Stroke" & "Flashlight" were really FUNKY....thanks to the WOO-man on the keyboards himself, Mr. Bernie Worrell!!

3.     "Rhythm & Rhyme" smoked with Garry Shider's funky-ass guitar licks & Treylewd handling the lead raps! Belita Woods did some great vocals for the Jimmy G & the Tackheads track, "Slingshot".

4.     "Somethin' Stinks and I Want Some" featured rapping by Shonda & "Booty" featured crazed rap vocals by Treylewd!! LIGE CURRY REPRESENTED ON HEAVY, EARTH-SHAKING BASS ROMPS & BLACKBYRD SET THE ROXY AFIRE WITH SOME VICIOUS, SEARING LEAD GUITARISMS!!!!!!

5.     "Billy Boy" was Treylewd's shining moment--the song is a very juvenile, but hilarious spin on the Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinsky case!! Suggestive lyrics were brought to the funky ears by the nasty Treylewd!!

6.     "Maggot Brain" was Mike "Kidd Funkadelic" Hampton's shining moment on lead guitar as a tribute to the late Eddie Hazel!! (Eddie is somewhere smiling now!!!) The ending of the song sounded like "Super Stupid" with some blazing guitars and bombastic basses!! It was a trip to Andre Foxxe playing with the P-Funk guys, wearing a wedding gown!!

7.     "Bop Gun" featured some really funked-out bass licks by the O.G. bassist, Mr. Billy Bass Nelson!! The horns (Greg Thomas, Bennie Cowan & Scott Taylor) represented well on this song and "Gamin' on Ya"!!

8.     "Red Hot Momma" featured some funkafied drums, LETHAL-ROCK guitarisms & bassisms, and spicy synthesizer riffs by Razorsharp.

The show ended at 1:55am.
