I'd have to say James Brown, because he's really the only person on that list that I know well.
I chose other - Prince.
Other- Parliament. Heheh.
I'm more of a Parliament fan, but like most people it's hard for me to separate Parliament from Funkadelic. In fact, I might actually like Funkadelic best.
You're way heavy on the 70's, though. You need more 80's funk. I wouldn't vote for them, but someone might. :) I'd almost vote for Prince.
All great artists, but I'll go with Tower of Power. :)
I'm glad to see this list is getting attention. Good to know that people around here know their funk! :)
Funkadelic for me then Kool & The Gang :)
Some great choices though
James Brown, aka The King of Funk.
There's strong arguments for a lot of these bands. However, my vote goes to James Brown (and the J.B.s) for their innovation, and legendary tightness. Plus, who doesn't like to hit it and quit it? Hot pants. Hyeeeoowww!
James Brown. But I enjoy every artist on that list.
