Recording both as Parliament and Funkadelic, George Clinton revolutionized R&B during the ’70s, twisting soul music into funk by adding influences from several late-’60s acid heroes: Jimi Hendrix, Frank Zappa and Sly Stone. The Parliament/Funkadelic machine ruled black music during the ’70s, capturing over forty R&B hit singles (including three number ones) and recording three platinum albums.
