A pioneer of funk, having been involved in Parliament/Funkadelic and Talking Heads in the early years, and continuing on with some of today’s greatest, he also frequented the stage with Warren Haynes and Gov’t Mule.Check out this bone-chilling footage of the the Wizard of Woo performing Neil Young‘s “Cortez the Killer,” back in 1999 at Irving Plaza in NYC alongside Warren Haynes, Allen Woody with his double neck guitar, and Blues Traveler bassist Bobby Sheehan. Simply mind-blowing!Warren Haynes posted a thoughtful message to his Facebook page about the tragic loss in music, accompanied by a video of their “Killer Mosquito” performance:RIP Bernie Worrell!last_img
