    Extraordinary keyboard player Bernie Worrell left this world today at the age of 72. Best known for his work as the "Wizard of Woo" in Parliament/Funkadelic, he also released music as a solo performer and contributed unique sounds for many other artists in the Rock and R&B universe. I will remember him as a member of the expanded Talking Heads touring band during their zenith "Stop Making Sense" days. While his passing will be overshadowed by the many, many other great talents that have been taken this year, Bernie was among the best at his craft.

    He will be missed. Besides Parliament-Funkadelic, he was such a great addition to the Jam Band scene. Gov't Mule, Bernie Worrell and the Woo Warriors,Colonel Claypool's Bucket of Brains, etc..

    :rip:

    Prince inducted P-Funk into the HOF. His influence is all over Prince's music.

    Shit, I just watched "PCU" the other day. Wonder if he's in that scene where the band plays.
