George Clinton has announced that after more than 4 decades of performing he will retire from touring next year. The P-Funk legend says the band’s legacy will continue without him and even telling Rolling Stone earlier this year that he made a hologram for them to use after he’s gone. Parliament is releasing Medicaid Fraud Dog later this year. Clinton’s recent pacemaker surgery for his heart did not influence his decision to leave the road because as he says,
“Truth be told, it’s never really been about me, it’s always been about the music and the band. That’s the real P-Funk legacy. They’ll still be funkin’ long after I stop.”
Parliment-Funkadelic is currently on tour for the rest of 2018.
