Bernie Worrell Sits in with Bootsy Collins

Dino Perrucci

Last night, legendary funk bassist Bootsy Collins performed New York’s BB King Blues Club. The show turned into something of a funk all-star set when Collins invited out another classic member of Parliament-Funkadelic, keyboardist Bernie Worrell, for a portion of his show. Worrell’s busy schedule has also included a show with Steven Bernstein’s MTO at Bonnaroo, dates with Steve Kimock and a tour with his own self-described orchestra. Collins will perform at Glenside, PA’s Keswick Theatre tomorrow.

It would be next to impossible to like this band if I didn’t even like Teen Idles or Minor Threat. I got into hdrcaore in 97 and Hatebreed was already around.Saw fugayzi (anyone notice how rappers love to say that) and no joke the show was just them playing for 2 hours. Strong Grateful Dead vibe- I think I spent at least half the show in the back of Newport being bored by myself rather than listen.
