Fans were heartbroken yesterday, when the funky keyboardist known as Dr. G. Bernie Worrell lost his life to lung cancer at the age of 72. Worrell spent many years of his life performing with Parliament Funkadelic, tearing the roof off the mother with the band that defined the funk rock genre.
While Worrell will be remembered for a diverse musical legacy, there’s no shortage of funky clips from his time with P-Funk. Catch some serious soul from the Woo man at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 2004, below.
