I could totally hear him doing a cover of The Bar-Kays "Boogie Bodyland" or his take of "Freaky Behaviour"

If it breaks when it bends, U better not put it in!

I'm going to have to research those, forgot how they go.

My wishes from Parliament/Funkadelic: guitar on Cosmic Slop, Knee Deep, Quickie, Maggot Brain, or on the bass of Funkentelechy!

How could you not know this Ashateiks, especially how you seem to complain about him playing some of the same songs. I have no problem hearing an artist do covers. It is no question he's covered Barry White, Janet Jackson, James Brown, Sly & The Family Stone, and even Afro-Cuban Mongo Santamaria's music.

What you mean some of the same songs, I haven't heard of him covering some the songs/artist I mention?

And should have said in the thread "Black Artist Funk Songs" is more what I meant. So I'll edit.

And what James Brown songs has he covered?

'I Don't Want Nobody To Give Me Nothin.'

Other Soul/R&B covers would include 'La, La Means I Love U', 'Betcha By Golly Wow', and 'When Will We Be Paid?'

Of course there's all the GCS & Sly Stone covers as well.
