George Clinton

Funk pioneer George Clinton frequented the Late Show stage, like the recent performance flanked by RZA and Foley for an iconic mash-up of generations and genres. But these memorable moments were also a part of the show's earliest days, like when Clinton and the Funkadelics invited much of the audience onstage to join their performance of "(Not Just) Knee Deep."
