In 2017, George Clinton spoke with OffBeat for Backtalk. The following is an excerpt:
I’ve heard from many songwriters and musicians that the music business is cutthroat. Dr. John, for instance, calls the music business a racket.
Oh, it is. It’s straight gangster. But you get another chance at the apple. You can get your copyrights back and all of that.
Have your music business dealings taken a turn for the better recently?
I’m just starting to get the ownership of the music back now. I’ve worked for years for it. I just got ‘Atomic Dog’ back. Just got ‘One Nation Under a Groove’ and ‘Knee Deep’ back. So, I’m doing real good. But I had to go through hell. I mean, I spent millions of dollars fighting for it. But I finally got it back and all of the licenses are coming to me now. So, it’s going to be good for my heirs. That’s what I was fighting for, mostly. My grandkids, my kids.
