Benzel Baltimore

Benjamin "Benzel Baltimore" Cowan is the touring drummer for George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic. The son of P-Funk trumpeter Bennie "The General" Cowan, Benzel Baltimore grew up watching his father get down and was groomed by Parliament Funkadelic drummer Dennis Chambers to fill his spot.

The young funkateer got his break playing one song with the band at Woodstock '99 in front of 50,000 people at 15, and has been touring with the P-Funk All-Stars for over 15 years now.
