Funkadelic - Maggot Brain

Funkadelic was an African American music band most prominent during the 1970s. It and its sister act Parliament, both led by George Clinton, began the funk music culture of that decade.

Parliafunkadelicment loses its "Diaper Man". The Funk World is in mourning at the news that Garry 'Starchild' Shider, George Clinton's musical director and right hand man for 40 years, succumbed to brain cancer on June 16.



Apart from acting as main conduit between Clinton and his legions of musicians, Shider was renowned for taking the stage clad only in a large nappy, earning him the tag 'Diaper Man'. After hooking up with Funkadelic on 1971's Maggot Brain album, he sang, co-wrote and played guitar on all their major albums, along with sister group Parliament's post-1974 output, Clinton's later solo projects and many P-Funk offshoots. Shider was also band leader of Clinton's current P-Funk All Stars.

Born in Plainfield, New Jersey, in July, 1953, He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997, with fifteen other members of Parliament-Funkadelic.
