He was the one who, at the request of James Brown, stressed "the one"; the first beat. And how! In the past forty years, Bootsy Collins has vibrated "the one" in countless funky numbers. Two years ago, the man with the platform boots, glitter and star-shaped glasses also came to Rotterdam, to show us what funk sounds like. In 2011 he returns with his latest album, Tha Funk Capitol of the World, with the support of rappers like Ice Cube and Snoop Dogg and his former Parliament-Funkadelic colleague George Clinton. According to the extravagant bass player and singer, he was requested by the Universe to make this album and he was more than ready for it. If this is true, the Universe has a rather festive taste in music.
