Now here’s a story to be told. The history of Funk. An idea inspired by legendary record producer Arthur Baker lead historian/filmmaker/author Nelson George to travel through America interviewing musicians to document the history and influence of funk. Including interviews with founding fathers Sly Stone, Bootsy Collins, and those influenced by the genre such as Mtume, Nona Hendryx, Nile Rodgers, Steve Arrington, Mike D of the Beastie Boys, Marcus Miller, Vernon Reid, Maceo Parker, Bernie Worrell, Reggie Hudlin, Shock G, D’Angelo, Stuart Matthewman, Sheila E., and Diplo — Finding the Funk will be a blueprint in our times. In order for this seminal project to be completed, George has started a Kickstarter campaign to support the effort – there are only five days left to support!! The documentary will be aired on VH1 in 2013.
