Last Sunday I went to see the guy on this photo. Or rather, he came to see me, because I didn’t have to go far to see him play. The legendary George Clinton gave a concert with his over ten-headed black men’s band, and he chose Hilversum as the place. So for well over two hours the man spewed his funky stuff out over the audience, which was going crazy. “Free you mind”, was the message,”“and your ass will follow.” For anyone acquainted with Frank Zappa, Captain Beefheart and the likes, this would be your thing. American extravaganza to be taken seriously.
Needless to say – but I will anyway – it was a wicked gig.
