first_imgDean Ween, aka Mickey Melchiondo Jr., has been a long time fan of the Parliament-Funkadelic sound, and it’s no surprise that he was hit hard by the recent passing of keyboardist Bernie Worrell. Worrell had collaborated with Ween in the past, sitting in with the full band back in 2003 (watch here). Now, Dean Ween is honoring Worrell’s legacy in the most fitting way possible: through the music.The guitarist recruited P-Funk’s own Michael Hampton, as well as Bill Fowler and Glenn McClelland, to record a full tribute of Ween’s “favorite Bernie track,” a tune called “Liquid Sunshine.” Read Dean Ween’s comments below, and listen to this great song below.A tribute to the funkiest keyboard player to ever grace this planet, or anywhere in the known universe. I’m not even sure he was from this planet actually, a once in a lifetime master along the lines of Jimi, or Ravi Shankar.This was always my favorite Bernie track—the whole Motor Booty affair record actually. I consider it his P-Funk masterpiece, the whole damn album is the best P-Funk keyboard record to my ears. Rest in P Doctor Woo.
