early red hot chili peppers is legit funk...first two albums, a lot on the third , and some on the 4th and 5th
but funkadelic - an offshoot of parliament, and the ohio players

Wouldn't laugh that hard. They used to be produced by George Clinton from Parliament / Funkadelic. Their old stuff had a good funk to it. Was it 'funk'? No, but for rock it was pretty decent funkwise.

I didnt say RHCP werent funk, they have some great funkadelic (also a good one) riffs, especially on Freaky Styley, i was just being an idiot

A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who isn't a close-minded moron.

Sly And The Family Stone, IMO one of the greatest bands in any genre, not to mention a great inspiration on funk.
