Bootsy Collins Celebrates ‘Holidaze’ With Snoop
Funk legend Bootsy Collins has teamed up with heavy-hitters from several different genres for his first-ever holiday album, 'Christmas is 4 Ever.' The project features nine 'Bootsyized' yuletide classics like 'Winterfunkyland' and 'Jingle Belz', along with four original holiday songs, including a duet with Snoop Dogg called 'Happy Holidaze.'
Country legend Charlie Daniels lends his fiddle to the classic 'Sleigh Ride.' Former James Brown collaborators Fred Wesley and Bobby Byrd also lend their voices to the album, while Buckethead, Bishop Don Magic Juan and Roger Troutman offer holiday greetings on the CD.
The Grammy-winning Collins is no stranger to such star-studded company. He has worked with a who's who of musicians throughout the span of his long career, including Herbie Hancock, Keith Richards, and Bill Laswell.
