You beat me to it!

I don't get the first post in this category...

Micheal Jackson is an interesting question. Is it okay to listen to someone's music if they're a pedophile? I know that alot of stadiums stopped playing Rock and Roll part 2 once they found out that Gary Glitter was a pedo.

As for Radiohead... you can like them or not, but I wouldn't use the argument that "how can that many fans be wrong?" since in sales terms they get crushed by the likes of music dynamos Limp Bisquit, NSync, Celine Dion, etc.

Suggestiosn wanted

I don't think he is a pedofile, it seems like he is incappable of sexual feelings of any kind. It is weird that he sleeps in the same bed as a bunch of kids, but more likley is he is just messed up and obviously wants a childhood now. I don't want to turn this into a Michael Jackson debate though. It's just about the music!

Nope

I don't think Neil Young would fit in with what I'm looking for...

Okay, assume that MJ is guilty.
Would you buy his music then?

What about R Kelly?

Norman Greenblum - Spirit in the Sky.

That is what's missing off of every album these days.

Not sure...
Posted by phduffy on Dec 03, 2003
I think Ray Charles might be a little too much soul and not quite enough funk.
Have any specific song suggestions?

your missing out

George Clinton and the P-Funk Allstars!
We Want the Funk!
Gotta have the Funk!

This NEEDS to be on your list. George Clinton (and Parliament) are all about funk. Very booty-licious indeed.

Proper track listing to aid your search:

Get Up for the Downstroke - Parliament

Tear the Roof off the Sucker (Give up the Funk) - Parliament

Mothership Connection (Star Child) - Parliament

Atomic Dog - George Clinton (this is before Snoop Dogg btw)

Flash Light - George Clinton

George Clinton's work is some of the most heavily sampled in today's hip hop and r&b. Whether it be his basslines, drums, synths, or lyrics - his work is ever present.

Sampling

I was actually listening to a radio program about G Clinton, and his influence on today's rappers. Basically, it's like this: West Coast : Sample Clinton
East Coast: Sample James Brown.
