Import USA Hardback edition book

Now, finally, after fifty years in the business, George Clinton is ready to deliver the whole P-Funk saga. It's a story without compare: the musical innovations, the rock-and-roll debauchery, the ups and downs of his career. More to the point, it's a story told by the man who made it happen, and told in his own unique style, which combines an almost photographic recollection of the events of his life with an impish sense of humour and a philosophical bent. There's no one like George Clinton, and no one better prepared to tell the tale of a half-century of innovation, triumph, disappointment, addiction, contradiction, artistry, fandom, fun, and - above all - funk.
