Archive: Revisiting the P-Funk Mothership
When Parliament-Funkadelic last took the stage at the 9:30 Club in April, frontman George Clinton gave a declaration: "[Expletive] what they said in the paper today! The Mothership still flies!"
He was referring to a Washington Post story on his band's missing Mothership -- the mythic stage prop that was allegedly dumped in Prince George's County in the early '80s.
Now, with P-Funk headed back to the 9:30 on Saturday, we thought it was as good a time as any to republish that feature. Read the piece here and check out interview excerpts that didn't make it into the story, including an interview with the late Garry Shider who passed in June.
