Wikipedia : This day (October 26, 1951), in Cincinnati, Ohio, is born Bootsy Collins, an American funk bassist and singer.

Bootsy Collins : From 1969 to 1971, the group functioned as James Brown’s backup band and was dubbed the J.B.’s. In 1972, Bootsy joined George Clinton’s Parliament/Funkadelic. Collins and Clinton soon established a lifelong personal and musical friendship.

@Facebook : Those were some of my best times in life other than traveling across country in a station wagon full of Funkadelic‘s and Lady Freaks wanting to ride along just for the funk of it. Yep, we got plenty funked up! I hooked up with Snoop Dogg, the Chilli Pepper’s, Phil Ramone, Eddie Krammer, Buddy Miles, you name um, but then a little space & time passed and all of a sudden I along with Parliament/Funkadelic, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997.

@last.fm : Although he also appeared in the music video playing the bass, the bassline in the song is actually a sample of a Herbie Hancock song called “Bring Down the Birds”. Bootsy’s Rubber Band became the defacto backing musicians for Deee-Lite during a world tour.
