George Clinton on the Beatles

George Clinton, speaking about the evolution of P-Funk in the mid-'70s: audiences had evolved, just as they would do if they were exposed to something constantly which itself is allowed to change. The best example of that is The Beatles: they would hit you with all kinds of shit, all kinds of good music--rock, funky, classical, pop, witty, folky--and their audience would go with them because once they put it up there and it was good, people wanted to get into it, they wanted The Beatles to take them with them. Wherever they were going. (quoted in Lloyd Bradley, "Interstellar Overdrive," Mojo Sept. 2014, p. 57)
