DAY 49 GRAMMY CHASE: WHO’S GOT THE FUNK?

Day 49, I came across some pretty disturbing, unbelievable Grammy-related findings. How is it that after well over 30 years of involvement in the music industry and countless classic chart-topping hit songs, that George Clinton, The Parliament, Funkadelic, etc., has never been recognized by the Recording Academy? One of the most sampled groups (artists, G. Clinton) of all-time that gave us, “Atomic Dog,” “Flashlight,” “One Nation Under a Groove,” and countless others, mysteriously has never be awarded a Grammy!! It makes me re-think the importance of the Grammy’s. The fact that an act, artist or group has never been awarded a Gramophone doesn’t take away or lessen the quality of their musical contributions. Despite George Clinton’s music having contributed to the large success and platinum selling status of many other artists that have sampled his work;  as well as earned The Parliament a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame; the fact that they have never won a Grammy is even more bizarre than the stage antics they’ve been known for and that’s saying alot.

    It’s truely a damn shame that P-Funk,or Bootsy Collins have not been recognized for all their contributions to music.This travestry as well as others is why I hardly ever watch the grammy’s like I used to.True they got to play with The Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Robert Randolph & Family on two seporate occasions at the grammy’s but that’s not the same as winning one, which they deserve . I at least hope that the academy will wakeup to the coverup and uncover what’s up and perhaps give an lifetime achevement award to them next year or sometime in the near future as George Clinton will turn 70 years old in June.GOD only knows how long he will be with us. Peace&Blessings Always! Sincerely, Funkateer#1 Kent “K.L.FREEZE” Ridley. 4ever funkin on.
