Okay, enough is enough," long-time c member Bootsy Collins said today. This lengthy association, which led to Morrison's inclusion in c's 15-member 1997 induction class at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, began in a completely organic fashion. I don’t know if 'join' is the right way to describe it," Morrison told Red Bull Music Academy in 2015. I think 'starting to work with them' would be more accurate. I would often meet the members of P-Funk on tours we would all be a part of, so the idea of working with them was not that far-fetched.
Morrison played keyboards, provided vocals, produced and wrote for the Ohio Players during the early ’70s. His last solo record was 2004’s When the City. He also contributed to Dâm-Funk’s 2015 album, Invite the Light, and received a shout-out on Solange’s Grammy-winning A Seat at the Table on the track Junie.
