We all know what an amazing musician Bernie was. I'm very grateful to have known Bernie. He was also a wonderful, sweet, giving individual. He will be missed.

Rest in Peace. I have a CD from you when your web site was first starting off and I ask for All the Woo in the World. I think one of your family member was email me back and forth until I got it. I had about 5 copies on wax back in the day but you will be missed. Thank you for all the sounds from all the artist you put down keys for the WOO and the Funk will never stop.

Thank you, Dr. Worrell, for giving us your life. I have listened to your music since 1971 and nearly every day thereafter. I love you for that and your family for giving us you. I love your music so much for taking me through happy and sad times, times of success and through setbacks. My wish is to be buried with yours and Parliament Funkadelic's music. I hope my idea for Parliament Funkadelic music, including "Who's a Funkadelic," is one day realized so new generations are always exposed to it. Funkadelic music is love, joy, fun, political, insightful, and most all teaching, and Dr. Worrell's input, therein, is invaluable and immeasurable. When I was a kid, I always loved when you came to my hometown, Columbus, Ohio (though my beautiful mom did not understand you guys - lol). Love you, man...RIP...

As I was reading about Alphonse Mouzon passing I read that Bernie passed, I'm in shock! If you've got funk you've got style. You're funkin' in eternity, Bernie, styling forever; you will be missed. A true keyboard master.

Today is new years eve 2016 - Iยดm just listening to a mix on mixcloud called "goodbye 2016! and never come back" honouring all great musicians..
Bernie not on the mix...
So I have to write this from my soul -
Iยดve never seen him live - I wish I had
Today Iยดll access the LIVE show of Parliament who are playing in VEGAS
remembering him.
Yesterday I saw the concert of the STONES in CUBA on TV ...
What a generation!
Greetings from Good Old Europe

I knew it wouldn't last forever, but your music and the world wide influence that you as a member of Parliament Funkadelic will forever remain as a stain of FUNK! I remember going to the Olympia Stadium to see you as a teenager every year that I could. Miss you man!

His music enlightened all who heard it, but his presence lightened my heart. I am deeply touched by the short time I worked with him. He brought light to my heart, wonder to my mind, and funk to my booty.
Thank you, Bernie. RIP

RIP to a legend. Thank you for enriching my life with your music. We played the Pfunk as Dj's from a very young age and even before that, after school my friend and I would go through his brothers Parliament/Funkadelic collection in the very early eighties. I was always attracted to the way in which the music was created and some of the sounds were just out there. Your genius on the keyboards was responsible. Rest in Power. :-)
