Clinton began his career as the mastermind behind the bands Parliament and Funkadelic before launching in to a startlingly brilliant solo career. He is often cited as being one of the forefathers of funk music. In the 70s he belonged to an esteemed group, the P-Funk, which comprised a selection of funk music innovators. In 1997, he and 15 of his P-Funk members were allocated in to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, a great honour indeed.

Born in North Carolina in the USA but growing up in New Jersey, Clinton was musical from a young age and tried to break into the industry early. P-Funk was his big break, earning him and his bandmates three number one singles and three platinum albums as well as countless more songs (about 40 of which became hits). As a producer, Clinton has worked with performers such as The Red Hot Chilli Peppers.

Clinton emerged as a soloist in 1982. Some of his most notable hits include ‘Loopzilla’, ‘Do Fries Go With That Shake?’ and ‘Atomic Dog’ which reached the number one spot on the R&B charts. After a slight dip in notoriety in the late 80s, Clinton’s popularity was resurrected in the 90s when many artists, particularly rappers, began to cite him as musical inspiration.
