When Bernie joined original Parliament-Funkadelic, the members of Parliament were/are: Calvin Simon, Clarence “Fuzzy” Haskins, Grady Thomas and Ray Davis, George C.
The members of original Funkadelic were: Billy “Bass” Nelson, Tal Ross, Eddie Hazel, Tiki Fulwood and Bernie Worrell.
Everyone else came after. The writing team of Bernie and George began at this point. One note: the song “Me & My Folks, You & Your Folks” was co-written by Bill Bass — NOT Judie Jones. “Livng The Life” was co-written by Judie Jones, not Bill Bass. We are working to get these properly credited.
