| LIVE AT THE NORTH SEA JAZZ FESTIVAL ~ BOOTSY COLLINS :
Bassist William 'Bootsy' Collins first made a name for himself between 1969 and 1971 as a key member of James Brown's famous backing band The JB's. In company with fellow JB's Fred Wesley and Maceo Parker he defected to George Clinton's hugely-influential Funkadelic/Parliament set-up, where he developed his flamboyant and highly-visual stage act.
In 1976 Bootsy formed his own commercially successful P-Funk spin-off, Bootsy's Rubber Band, which enjoyed six album and fifteen single R&B hits, including the chart-topping 'Bootzilla'. In 1989 Bootsy supported Malcolm McLaren on his album 'Waltz Dancing' and a year later played guitar and bass with international dance sensation Deee-Lite.
