I want to help

Bootsy Collins

I was born in Cincinnati Ohio, where I became a staff musician at King Records by the time I was 15. At 17, I was touring the world with James Brown. I then went on to play in P-Funk and front Bootsy's Rubber Band. I was inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997. With an upcoming album release and a number of artists signed to my record label, Bootzilla Productions, I am still busy making music every day.
