Bootsy Collins has been part of the funk music scene since 1968. Would people recognize him without the star sunglasses? I don’t think that I would know him without the glasses unless he said something.

  • Collins doesn’t seem to age. The internet says he’s 66 but he seems so much younger.
  • Did you know that Collins is from Ohio? He’s originally from Cincinnati, Ohio.
  • Collins also has an actual name. It’s William. Weird, right?!
  • He played as part of the James Brown band, as well as Parliament-Funkadelic.
  • Did you know there was an actual Funk University? The website is here: Bootsy Collins Funk University
