George Clinton To Retire From Touring, Delivers New Visual for “I’m Gon Make U Sick O’Me” (As Parliament)


First, the bad news, as revealed via Billboard:

If you want to watch the original master of funk do his thing, you’ve got one more year. Parliament/Funkadelic frontman/producer George Clinton is set to retire from touring in May 2019.

“This has been coming a long time,” Clinton says in a statement announcing his retirement. “Anyone who has been to the shows over the past couple of years has noticed that I’ve been out front less and less.”

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, who turns 77 in July, recently underwent pacemaker surgery. However, he emphasizes that the procedure wasn’t a factor in his decision.

“Truth be told,” adds Clinton, “It’s never really been about me. It’s always been about the music and the band. That’s the real P-Funk legacy. They’ll still be funkin’ long after I stop.”

The gang will be at 9:30 Club this August, so you better not miss it. In the meantime, you can enjoy a new visual for Parliament’s new single “I’m Gon Make U Sick O’Me,” their first new single in 38 years. The track features Scarface and Mudbone….check that out above.
