The Funk Brothers were/are a rotating group of session musicians who performed on many Motown classics, including The Contours‘ 1962 hit “Do You Love Me.” This 2002 line up backed Bootsy.
I always liked that song even though nobody knows exactly what Procul Harum was singing about in 1967.
Robin Trower continued his career after leaving Procul Harum, had a nice solo run, and is still performing at 75. Jimmy Dewar‘s vocals always fit.
Have a great weekend, folks, don’t burn down or loot anything, turn in those who do, and we’ll see you back here tomorrow for something or other.

Bootsy’s New Rubber Band’s got a nice groovejam going with a left handed shredder.
Here’s a fun compilation, “Peavey Nation,” by the Sons of Zappa, featuring a cameo by Dick Clark.
Have a great Easter weekend, folks.

We wish you all a Bootsy Christmas! And may Santa bring you all the funk you deserve.
