George Clinton, the colorful singer known as Dr. Funkenstein, was busted in December 2003 by Florida cops and charged with possession of cocaine and drug paraphernalia. The 62-year-old Parliament-Funkadelic founder, who owns a home in Tallahassee, spent less than an hour in the Leon County Jail before coming up with the $2650 he needed to bond out.
A friend of mine went to see him at The Key in Bala this summer. He was supposed to meet George earlier on in the day at a cottage party. When my friend got to the cottage one of the band members told him "Sorry man! George passed out on his crack pipe in the hotel room, he won't be making it here"
