Still can't believe you are gone. Much like I have yet to visit Ground Zero, losing you is too painful for me to understand, acknowledge, and accept...your presence is still felt and will forever be.

Bernie Worrell has been and will always remain one of the most influential musicians of my life. I am truly heartbroken over his passing, yet grateful and joyous to have experienced the genius of his artistry within my lifetime. I've always wanted to express to him how his music literally changed my life, and I will always regret never actually saying it to him when I had the opportunity to. My condolences and deepest sympathy to the Worrell family, and to his inner circle of friends who knew and loved him the most.

Judy, I reached out to you in 2012 when Bernie was coming to play Waterstreet in Rochester NY and you arranged for Mike and I to meet Bernie after the show. Not only was it a fantastic performance but Bernie was so awesome and personable! The world is a lot less funky without him!

WOW i'm gutted not Bernie as well. I roadied for him one night in the winter of 96 maybe 97 @ a gig called sankey soaps in manchester. When I saw him struggling with a power cable I jumped up 2 help as I have the same funk machine still have it :) and for all funkateers out there its Kawai PH50. ' Booty's Rubber Band they took the roof off. The Building literally ROCKED @ the end Bernie parted the crowd with a hand full of roses and made sure I got the first one it was a great feeling of love and thanx. Guess what I still have it dried in a basket in window along with a flower from Graceland which proudly new to my buddah, where this day offer special obasences to KING WOO. blessings prayers and light your foreverwellwisher.

P-Funk may have been the best band ever. The last time I saw Bernie was with his orchestra in San Diego on 1-19-2013. Just found a link to the audio from the entire concert, https://archive.org/details/bwo2013-01-19.R26.matrix.flac16. He opened our ears to new sounds and we are forever changed.
