Bootsy Collins Is Here to School You. No, Seriously.

I think my inner seventeen-year-old funk fanatic just had his mind blown.


To clarify: Bootsy Collins is launching his own Funk University.

According to ABC News (I was originally alerted by Fark), Bootzilla, along with guest lecturers like Flea and Victor Wooten, will be passing the torch on to a new generation of funkateers ready to get up for the downstroke.

Bootsy is putting out info through his Twitter account, though you can get some info through the official website. The program appears to be web-based, with no mention of a physical campus (as opposed to, say, The Academy of Contemporary Music at UCO); lessons appear to be available on a monthly basis with video from guest lecturers as well as assignments.

This is easily my favorite news of the day.
