Bootsy Collins Tickets - The Essence of FunkIf you were able to spout out boasts about touring and working with the likes of James Brown, George Clinton with the Parliament Funkadelic, and Deee-Lite, your name would probably be none other than Bootsy Collins himself, a funk and R&B bass guitarist, singer, and bandleader extraordinaire, originally known as William Collins, born October 26, 1951, in Cincinnati. Back in the day, he was really only a functional part of the music industry, starting off a band or two -- like the Pacesetters in 1968 and Bootsy's Rubber Band in 1976. But he really came into his own when Warner Bros. signed him in that year of 1976 for his major debut.
Bootsy Collins Tickets - The Music of CollinsHe had a total of 15 R&B top singles in his career. The first one was 'Stretchin' Out (In a Rubber Band).' He triumphed even more with a couple of his others being 1977's 'Pinocchio Theory' and 1978's 'Bootzilla.' Through Warners, he had released six albums including his top gold sellers Ahh...The Name Is Bootsy, Baby! in 1977 and Bootsy? Player of the Year in 1978. He then came back after six years to sign with Columbia and continue his stunning music career.
Bootsy Collins Tickets - The Sound and Style of CollinsTake one look at him, and you'll notice that it's a pizzazz snazzy setup of colors and fabulous musical phenomenon. Some of his best visuals come from the videos established by the '80s pop sensation Deee-Lite. Many would know him even better as the man behind the music of James Brown in the background.
