Bootsy Collins

One of music's most notable bassists, Bootsy Collins went from rocking out in Ohio to working with the notorious James Brown, who taught him "The One" funk basics. But it was when Bootsy met George Clinton that he created his larger-than-life persona and became the backbone of the P-Funk empire. As the frontman of Bootsy's Rubber Band, he quickly achieved solo stardom before realizing that what he loved most about music was the joy of just being part of a group.
