Put a glide in your stride, a dip in your hip, and come on down to Funk University.
Bootsy Collins, a legendary bassist who played for James Brown and Parliament-Funkadelic, is starting an online program for bass players. Professor Bootsy’s fledgling funkateers will commence their schooling July 1.
“Wow, I just can’t keep all this funk to myself,” Bootsy explains in a video laying out his vision for the school.
And funk they did.
Announcements of new online programs rarely get any attention, but Bootsy’s e-learning debut is going viral. Wired Campus tried to grab a piece of the four-string funk for Chronicle readers. Unfortunately, the P-Master of the Universe was unavailable for an interview.
