    I like that Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears song.

    Think Prince song was okay.

     Always dug that Sly & The Family Stone song.

    Is this song a reach? It is Funky for this Band?


    Hahahahaha!!!!  Yes it is.  He says at the end of the song "have you seen the bridge? Wheres that confounded bridge?"  That is a take on James Brown always asking his band "Can I take it to the bridge?!?"

    Taken from Sex Machine!

    ^^^^yo!!! Just snagged this cd. Fantastic obscure jb stuff. Didn't flava flav use that drum riff?

    EVERYONE used that drum riff.  Scarlett Begonias by Sublime used it too.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Funky_Drummer
    Scarlet Begonias is a Grateful Dead song. Sublime did a very good cover.
    I'm well aware of that but Sublime made a completely different version than the Deads.
    I'm well aware of that :lol: , a very good cover  often entails making the song one's own.  I forgot that they don't call you  @tempo_n_groove lightly. 😝

    How about this funky number by one of the original roots rockers?

    Good god^hit it. Saw him once too. Stage packed with awesomeness. Not much recollection of the show. Paramount theater nyc. I'd pay more attention if I saw him now. Maybe someday, not too soon i hope.

    Back in the day 1979 as a dj to make a few bucks at house and dorm parties this song of pure funk was the one that got EVERYONE running to floor to dance. It’s the first time I heard the word “twerk”, maybe George misspoke but it’s there at the 1:29 mark. At the 7:00 minute mark is probably one the best guitar solos ever in funk lasting almost 3 minutes. This 15 minute classic I’d play and I’d hit the floor.
