Seems like you were always there somewhere, tickling those keys and funking things up in the best way. You still are. Always will. Thanks for your generosity, your chops and your beautiful spirit.

I had the pleasure of making Dr Worrell's acquaintance during the late '90's when he brought the Woo Warriors to NYC and played Knitting Factory. Although having seen him several times with P-Funk some 20 years previously, this was a more casual setting which allowed us a chance to speak at length. Dr Worrell was a perfect gentleman, even purchasing me a cocktail while he recounted personal stories of the road. As I was leaving, he stopped me saying he'd really enjoyed our conversation and wanted to give me a shirt. I still wear it to this day. The Man defined what it means to be a Class Act!
