Thank you for being the vessel, the scribe and the spirit, the funk is because of you, for which we owe you gratitude. Thank you for your generosity, for sharing your gifts with the world. Rest in eternal peace and love.

Introduced to you by my Funky college roommate back in the late 70's, then reacquainted when you took up with my favorite 80's band Talking Heads. I had the opportunity on several occasions to meet you and the Mrs. at NAMM (Moog and DSI booths), and you were always as nice as you were talented. May your transition be smooth....

RIP Mr. Worrell. Thank you for the decades of outstanding music. Your music brought a lot of people together. I know you are at another place jamming with other great musicians Jack Bruce, Glen Goins, Eddie Maggot Brain Hazel and many others.

Thank you Mr Worrell for your wonderful contribution to the Funk world. The universe will have a little less groove and swagger without you. RIP.
