Happy OSF! A Tribute to Black Rock Music
As some of you folks may have figured out by now, I am a huge fan of both funk and black rock. Funk gets quite a bit of attention and credit, but not nearly enough attention is given to black rock. Consider this my small, but heartfelt contribution to the cause of black rock and rollers everywhere.
In my opinion, one of the baddest, most underappreciated black rock bands ever was Mother’s Finest. These MFs were the real deal.
And then there was Living Color. This song got some good play, as did Living Color, but once again they simply did not receive the acclaim that they should have.
And of course there has always been Parliament Funkadelic, who (thankfully) received considerable acclaim and recognition, though more for their funk exploits when, in fact, their rock contributions were easily as strong if not more so. Check out Eddie Hazel, Funkadelic’s original lead guitarist for Funkadelic. This brother was the SHIT…
But the father of them all? The Voodoo Child himself…
