* '''William Collins''' (better known as "Bootsy") - bass, vocals, guitar, drums. Initially a member of JamesBrown's band, came to P-Funk with his brother Catfish circa 1972. Famous for his basslines, his "space bass", his cartoonish suits (complete with top hats) that would later be seen on Music/PublicEnemy's Flava Flav and rapper T-Pain, and his instantly recognizable, goofy voice. Later formed Bootsy's Rubber Band. Average listeners probably know him for the vocals he contributed to Deee-lite's "Groove Is in the Heart" and cameo in the video (''Deee-lite have definitely been known to smoke... on stage that is!'' *slide whistle*).

'''George Clinton''' (July 22, 1941-) is a famous and acclaimed {{Funk}} musician. If JamesBrown was the [[TropeMaker pioneer]] of funk, George Clinton was the man who arguably [[TropeCodifier fulfilled its potential]] as the driving force of Parliament-Funkadelic. He is known foremost for his conceptual vision, socially conscious lyrics and production skills. The bands themselves are famous for their excellent musicianship, fierce live performances and outlandish albums boasting satirical comic-book artwork, its most famous covers being the ones drawn by Pedro Bell and Overton Loyd. Besides being considered a member of funk's "holy trinity" (alongside Music/JamesBrown and Music/SlyAndTheFamilyStone), he's also the second or third most {{sampl|ing}}ed musician, depending on who's counting.

* MindFuck: The title track from 1971's Free Your Mind And Your Ass Will Follow. The lyrics are almost completely nonsensical, mostly consisting of the title and "The King Of Heaven Is Within", the song itself is as Psychedelic as Soul can be, going into JimiHendrix territory, and probably the most accurate representation of taking LSD. George himself did say the album WAS to see if they could make a whole album while tripping on acid, and it shows very well.

* InTheStyleOf: "Maggot Brain" from ''Music/MaggotBain'' somewhat imitates Music/JimiHendrix. Early albums (1970-1972) owed quite a bit to the influence of Motown's psychedelic soul bands and hard funk.

* BlackSheepHit: The title track from 1978's One Nation Under A Groove has more mainstream Dance-Funk appeal than Funkadelic's previous hard Funk Rock material.
