Remembering Clyde Stubblefield

Fred and family are among those mourning the passing of legendary James Brown drummer Clyde Subblefield, and sending love to his family and management.

"He was the funkiest drummer in the world and he was one of my best friends," Fred said.  "I loved him a lot and I will miss him a lot."

The two last played together in November at the San Francisco Funk Festival as guests of the James Brown Dance Party. This photo is from 2012, when Clyde was a guest with Fred's New JBs at the same festival.
