Stating, "Prince doesn't play funk", is like saying, "Metallica doesn't play metal." Holy jumping shit-balls, quit smokin' what you're smokin'.

As far as Talking Heads are concerned, they're a commercialized version of Roxy Music. And yes, some of their music can be considered funk...


Actually, saying "Prince doesn't play pop", is more like saying, "Metallica doesn't play metal." I guess you and I have differences in opinion on funk music. Whatevs. I just don't as much enjoy the stale metronomic variation.

Fuck definitions. Do you think it's funky? Isn't that all that counts?

As you can see from my post on page two, I posted 2 pfunk albums that feature Bootsy quite heavily (every track on the Horny Horns album) and a James Brown album.

Not that I don't appreciate your links!!

Yeah! Funk has always been about the bass guitar.

Here's Bootsy absolutely killing it on the fuzzed out bass solo from I'd Rather Be With You. And it's fairly recent....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OIzN51SLwwg
