Having kick-started his career as part of James Brown's backing band (The JBs), Bootsy readily carved his name into the tomes of funk bass playing.
His relatively slap free tenure under Brown only lasted eleven months before he went on to provide the low end for the bombastic style of Parliament and Funkadelic.
Bootsy's style oozes sleazy funk, mixing slap with envelope filters/wah and fuzzy distortion. Without him, there would be no P-Funk, no G-Funk, and the world of slap bass would be a lot less pimpin'.
