Clinton visited The Lot Radio, where he talked about exploring the outer realms of house with Soul Clap and the tracks they've recorded under the name Funkadelic & Soul Clap: "First Ya Gotta Shake the Gate," "Peep This" and "In Da Kar" featuring Sly Stone.

Two weeks earlier, on Oct. 15, Clinton was the subject of a celebrity interview at the New West Summit cannabis conference in Oakland. A disciple of James Brown and Stone, he's best known as the frontman of Parliament and Funkadelic. They generally perform as George Clinton & Parliament-Funkadelic.
