Words and Music with George Clinton

Gilles speaks to the principle architect of P-funk, George Clinton.

Gilles is back in the studio with a whole heap of musical vitamins, joining the musical dots between soul, hip hop, house, afro, electronica, jazz and beyond.

This week he is joined by the principle architect of P-Funk, George Clinton, ahead of the London leg of his world tour. As part of the legendary groups Parliament and Funkadelic, George Clinton revolutionised R&B in the 1970's, ruling the charts with over 40 hit singles and three albums.

In this special programme, Gilles talks in depth to the funk legend about his life in music and his latest projects.
