Bootsy Collins


Everybody’s favorite starry-eyed funky bassist, the 60-year-old Bootsy Collins, will be stretchin’ out his band’s elastic music tonight, 35 years after he released his first solo album. Still funky after all these years, in 2011 he put out his 13th such release, The Funk Capital of the World, which featured guest spots by Snoop Dogg, Public Enemy’s Chuck D, and his former Parliament bandmates George Clinton and Bernie Worrell. Catch him on this rare respite from working at Old Navy as their “licensed bootologist.”
