Well, he spoke very fondly of you and said that you changed his life forever. I try to be there for people. Even the new folks coming along, if they reach out to me, I always answer. The Childish Gambinos, the Kendrick Lamars. I enjoy being there and working with the young guys coming up today. I enjoy what they’re doing. You got nominated with Kendrick Lamar last year, right? Yes I did. That was pretty cool. Tell me about the first time you met Sly Stone. We had the same manager for a quick second. We signed to the same label. I remember seeing him in New York City at the East Village at the Electric Circus. I was like GodDAMN! It was an R&B band with Marshall Amps. A straight R&B club band, but with Marshall Amps. When they did “Higher and Higher” at Woodstock, that was like the end of the world. And seeing that at a little club, it’s hard to imagine. But we became close and we remain close. When was the last time you saw him? Three weeks ago? He was homeless for a while, right? He still has to live on the edge, because they won’t give him his money. The creator of that music, out here hurting. You are the most sampled artist of all time. How does that feel? It makes me proud. It definitely feels good. It gives me a chance to reinvent myself. I like to recapture some of the old stuff. I feel good that I stuck in there, and hung in there. I’m doing a documentary on that whole story, about how a lot of that publishing got taken from me. We call “One Nation Under a Groove” the Holy Grail. That’s the story people got to try to imagine. What do you think is the strangest thing you have ever been a part of? Craziest night of them all? Man, you killin’ me. Tripping was it back in the day. I remember being on the roof of one of the buildings at Harvard. I was up there with a bunch of kids and I was so out here, I can’t remember actually getting up there. But man, my

life is full of crazy experiences like that. I was part of a whole bunch of stuff. What’s a normal day like for you these days? I know you’ve been sober for quite some time now. I get up and smoke a couple of joints, and I look out the window at squirrels eating food. I like to fish. I caught a bunch of big reds yesterday. But I’m getting ready to head to the studio now. I’m working on a new Parliament album called Medicaid Fraud Dog: One Nation Under Sedation. Ever been to Macon? What do you know about Macon? Oh yeah. We brought the Mothership there. I remember Macon. I’m a huge fan of Otis, and I know James lived there for a while. Believe me, I know Macon. I read somewhere today that you and Bootsy went on a hunting trip together. Oh man. That ended my hunting career. We had about $10,000 to spend, we got these guides in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, and we killed 32 animals. We have this picture of me and Bootsy and all these animals strung up behind us - I guess once you get bloodthirsty, you can’t stop. That trip gave me a Bambi complex. I can’t kill anything anymore. That was it for me. We gave the meat to a school and a hospital. We should have taken the fur - think of all the jackets I could have made!
