George Clinton: ‘We Want The Funk!’

ROME (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Legendary groover George Clinton says everybody’s gotta have that funk.

Clinton, who’s latest album George Clinton and His Gangsters of Love drops tomorrow (Oct. 7), says “the funk” he made famous is still alive and kicking, but sometimes people need to remind themselves of it when they’re – well – in a funk.

He says, “When you think you’ve lost the funk, you’ve got to call on it. You gotta yell out, ‘We want the funk!’ like your dancing around a fire.”

For those who feel like their funk is dead and gone, Clinton insists they committ to bringing it back and to, “Use the force, get in the zone, and let go.”

Clinton says his secret to staying funky over the years comes from appreciating new music, keeping his signature funky look, and knowing that he doesn’t “give a fk” what others say.

He explains, “I don’t think too hard about it. It just comes naturally for me.”
