Getting a statue in Bernie's likeness to inspire and teach people about his impact on music and the lives he touched would be a fitting gesture. Perhaps in his hometown

Bernie, rest in P for eternity. A most generous and gracious man.
GC may have been the conceptual wizard of P.Funk, but Bernie was the MUSICAL wizard, par excellence. Listen closely to the albums on headfones and find all the layers he put in there-- electric pianos, organ, melodica, grand piano, TOY piano. The long violin solo on Funkadelic's 'Adolescent Funk' is actually Bernie-- on synths!
Let's all hip the younger generations to his music so his artistry will be appreciated forever.

Patrick Hart Patrick Hart from Munich wrote on July 3, 2016:
It's a real shame that one the greatest musicians this planet has ever seen died over a week ago and I just recognized that today. Where's the big outcry at the social media platforms like in case of David Bowie, Prince or Lemmy. This man was KING OF KINGS!!!

(19.04.1944 - 24.06.2016)

Thanks for sharing your spirit and your funk!!!
