Bernie's music gives joy and laughter to my silent witness and a voice to both my healing transcendent vibrations and my nasty funky cacophonies. His music made me aware of what I already knew in my soul and his sonic power blew the cobwebs out my mind. Blessings to all family, friends, and fans.

PFunk is a true American original creation that changed the world and is more than a musical genre, but a way of life. Most things build in incremental steps - but not PFunk. PFunk came out of nowhere, breaking all the rules and blowing up everything that had come before it. It also blew my mind and funked me up. I wasn't the only one. Far from it. None of this could have happened without the geniius, imagination and fearlessness of Bernie. Thank you Bernie and RIP.

I loved Bernie's work with both Parliament/Funkadelic and Talking Heads. And what a privilege it was to meet him in person at the NAMM show a few years ago! Rest in peace, Bernie, your memory and music live on.

I'm only 14, but I have already started to plunge into the wonderful world of p-funk and it is incredibly unfortunate that such an incredibly talented musician has left us but I know that his spirit will live on through the fabulous music he has created and the funky legacy he has left.
