    You probably know more than me but I do know a few:

    The Gap Band, Earth Wind and Fire, Parliament, etc...

    Actually I found a good site with a list - 100 Greatest Funk Artists

    I know quite a few on there and it's debatable who the 'top' funk band is. :P
    Good list. I'd have suggested much of these. Personally, on this list, Marvin Gaye is too low, and behind Rick James!

    **** no.

    If he gets through that and he wants to go 60s and 70s black music, I'll recommend a list that'll make his head spin...that's without touching the Jackson 5.

    No offense to rock, but funk is still just as good if you want some cool underground sounds.

    When he grows up and gets to reggae, he'll get a true education in music...even I'm still learning...

    See my post above. It's got a nice list at that link. My wife is a big Prince fan and loves funk in general. I've learnt to appreciate it more over time. I've always enjoyed it though.

    I'm a fan of Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Rage Against the Machine and they're rock/funk.
    Prince is so good it isn't funny. Best concert I've gone to was with an ex 6 years ago for Prince. Esmeralda Spaulding (whose really wirth listening to if you like neo soul) and Lala Hathaway opened for Prince. And all he sang was early Prince.

    It was great because when he came out, no one sat. It was an older crowd who knew his old stuff and they all sang along to everything. Got a greater appreciation for him after that night.

    I know him best for his guitar skills, voice second.

    Prince is probably one of the least appreciated artists around. Can play any instrument. Has written lots of popular songs for other artists and is a great performer himself.

    His earlier albums and some of the more recent ones as well are simply about his struggle with his religious beliefs and his sexual desires and how they conflict.

    My goal is to get tickets to see him. I'm hoping he comes to London sometime soon for a stint.

    You should check out more of his music, especially his 80s/90s stuff. Some of the songs are quite interesting.

    If you know Foo Fighers they did a cover of Little Nicky and he's got other more 'interesting' songs...

    But all in all he's great with a guitar and likes to experiment which is fine with me.

    My favorite guys with an ax in hand are Prince, Hendrix and Joe Walsh. I know they're many other greats out there, but those are my top 3.

    I know Jimmy Hendrix was great with a guitar but I haven't really appreciated it until I saw some other footage of him playing an acoustic guitar. Playing right handed at that time wasn't easy either.

    Stay warm. It's 27F here. And they're talking about a snowstorm that if it hits us directly this weekend could dump 18" of snow in the area.

    Jeez. I need some Magic City or Kingston sunshine right about now...

    It is cloudy and rainy here and a bit cold for CA. My electric bill just doubled this past month.

    Compact is still the best sub 5" Android flagship around. Pricy as hell, but good indeed.

    But feel in hand is lousy with their blocky design. I would say even the cheap 640 feels better in hand.

    I hold no hopes for Nokia. See how quiet things were with the tablet they launched earlier? I think they'll be a lot of buzz and hype but they won't fare better than most OEMs in Android these days. If they're not careful, the Chinese'll blow them out of the water before they even start.

    They are just lending their name it seems. Foxconn built their tablet. Beautiful hardware but I believe they made it predominantly for the Asian and EU market. Let's see if they bring the phone to USA.

    Our company rents out an auditorium to do it once and sometimes twice a year. Sometimes it is fun, other times not so much. It is a good way to get the operators and technicians who build the product get energized.

    I like Niles Rodgers as well and he has been getting some good air play thanks to Daft Punk lately.

    I read through 30 odd posts about funk music and no mention of Bee Gees? Specifically since Earth, Wind and Fire was already mentioned? One of their later songs, Paying the Price of Love is one my all time favorites.
