Featured in TIR Episode 239 (2 parts): Drummer Benzel Cowan, since 2010 best known for keeping everything on THE ONE for George Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic. As the son of longtime P-Funk Horns trumpet player Bennie Cowan, he grew up immersed in funk so deep, and first sat in with the P-Funk All-Stars while still a teenager.
Mentored by P-Funk and jazz drumming icon Dennis Chambers, Benzel has collaborated and recorded with several other Clinton cohorts, including Danny Bedrosian, Michael Clip Payne, Garrett Shider and Lige Curry – all of whom have been guests on TRUTH IN RHYTHM. Here he lends insights to the experience of a lifetime in and around the P as well as drumming techniques.
