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 40 R&B hit singles (including three number ones) and recording three platinum albums.
