Recording both as Parliament and Funkadelic, George Clinton revolutionized R&B during the 70's, twisting soul music into funk by adding influence from several late 60's heroes including Jimi Hendrix, Frank Zappa, and Sly Stone.
Clinton's visibility and presence became familiar to a wider audience thanks to appearances in movies "The Night Before," "House Party," "PCU," and "Good Burger," his hosting the HBO original series "Cosmic Slop," and doing commercials for Apple, Nike, and Rio MP3 players. Clinton composed the theme songs for popular TV programs "The Tracey Ullman Show" and "The PJs".
