PHILLIPE WYNNE WAS MY FAVORITE! Best known for his role as the lead singer in the popular R&B group The Spinners Wynne then launched a solo career, but it was not nearly as successful. His fortunes turned upwards again as he joined George Clinton's Parliament-Funkadelic around 1979. He performed with them on several recordings, and was a featured vocalist on the Funkadelic single "(Not Just) Knee Deep." On July 13, 1984, while performing at Ivey's nightclub in Oakland, California, Wynne suffered a fatal heart attack. Wynne died the morning after.
LAST BUT NOT LEAST THE CLASSIC "SUGARFOOT" The Ohio Players were among the top funk bands of the mid-'70s This group which he wrote, sang and played guitar for became the internationally famed Throughout his career he had also been friends with the late Roger Troutman of Zapp, and Roger offered Sugarfoot the use of his studio to experiment on a solo album.
The project included former members of The Ohio Players and was produced by Roger Troutman who took the project to Warner Brothers.
In 1985 'Sugar Kiss' was released by the label.

The Funk Knat be funkin since way back. How can Sugar Foot and Mr Wynne be compared with Glenn Goins. Glenn Goins Made The P Funk sound. Its a shame that George and Bootsy receive all the headlines, and Glenn is now be rediscovered for his powerful contributions to the P Funk. The dude could sing his soul and heart out. Very powerful for a little man. A note of interest, those of you who are old funkateers, listen to the music now and find out for yourself what you have missed. When it first arrived back in the seventies, the music was funk, booty, or dance music. But one thing that went unnoticed, was the craftsmanship and talents of the musicians and singers that didn't get recognize. I enjoyed the P Funk music more today then I did years ago. Music arrangements and rhythms are out of this world. Some of the most underrated musicians ever assembled. I have to go, my blood pressure is rising. For my funkateers, just tune up your ears , and kick back to the funk with a little different perspective. Keep Funkin. Note ( You did not include Steve Arrington)
