Featured in TIR Episode 111 (Part 1 of 2): Bassist and composer Rodney “Skeet” Curtis, who has spent more than 40 years holding down the bottom for Parliament-Funkadelic and associated acts. Among the all-time classics his bass virtuosity can be heard on are Parliament’s Motor Booty Affair, Funkadelic’s One Nation Under a Groove, The Brides of Funkenstein’s Never Buy Texas From a Cowboy, The P-Funk All-Stars Live at the Beverly Theater and George Clinton’s The Awesome Power of a Fully Operational Mothership (TAPOAFOM).
He has also played with drummer Dennis Chambers and been a longtime sideman for legendary funk saxophonist Maceo Parker, who he had just completed a six-week tour of Europe with. Here, Skeet recounts those classic P-Funk years, discusses his unique playing style, his connection with Maceo and much more.
