    I went over the summer at On The Bricks in Atlanta. I had a really good time and it was fun even if George didn't know who he was. Our very own Woodchuck open for them in his band El Pus.

    Last time I saw them, which was several years ago, it was very bad. Gary Shider has lost his beautiful voice and now sounds like the cookie monster. The band was tight but the singing was awful. George has been that way for years but always had Gary to back him up. The only salvation at that show was D'Angelo sitting in and singing some.

    I have seen P-Funk a number of times but I doubt I will bother to see them again.

    They played a free show in our local park on May 21st of last year. I seriously just looked in the paper one day and it said, "George Clinton and P-Funk: free concert in Forsyth Park." I had a great time nonetheless.
