Bootsy Collins

John Abbey, Blues & Soul, June 1976

"SAY MAN, do you think these shades make me look just a little like Bootsy Collins? Eh?" Well, they ought to. Yep, you guessed it kids, it's Bootsy himself – he of incredible Rubber Band fame. Our man's been around some and in his time he's worked with The JB's and Parliament. Recently, he's also been on sessions for Johnnie Taylor and the Soul Children. But with the Rubber Band he's stretchin' out an' doin' his own thing.
