At 75, funk legend George Clinton may have been the oldest performer at this year's Coachella, but he's not slowing down any time soon. Backstage at the Heineken House, just after he and his revolving door of P-Funk Allstars laid down two hours of jams (including staples like "Atomic Dog," as well as newer material), Clinton spoke with Billboard about the new Parliament album in the works.
"It's called Medicaid Fraud Dog," Clinton said. "It's about the pharmaceutical companies, insurance companies, people selling meds!"
This was the funk pioneer's first time on the Indio field for the fest, but he and his myriad bands have decades of festival experience. "It reminded me of the European festivals," he said. "Glastonbury and all of those, I've done those over and over. It reminds me of the Woodstock thing -- we've done that!"
