George Clinton & the P-Funk Allstars
at the Roxy in NYC - 7/10/00
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:
The drumming was tight
& funky (thanks to Ron Wright) during "Tear The Roof Off The
"Up For The Down
Stroke" & "Flashlight" were really FUNKY....thanks to the
WOO-man on the keyboards himself, Mr. Bernie Worrell!!
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".
"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
"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!!
"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!!
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"!!
