About Bootsy Collins

William Earl "Bootsy" Collins (born October 26, 1951) is an American musician, singer and songwriter.

Rising to prominence with James Brown in the early 1970s, and later with Parliament-Funkadelic, Collins's driving basslines and humorous vocals established him as one of the leading names in funk. He is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, inducted in 1997 with 15 other members of Parliament-Funkadelic.

Early life

Collins was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, United States, on October 26, 1951. He said that his mother named him "Bootsy". "I asked her why," he explained to a journalist, "and she just said, 'Because you looked like a Bootsy.' I left it at that."

His brother Phelps "Catfish" Collins (1943–2010) was also a musician. He and Bootsy were once part of James Brown's backing band, The Pacemakers.

Collins has maintained a strong connection with Cincinnati.
