    Garry Shider, the musical director for George Clinton’s Parliament-Funkadelic band known for wearing a diaper on stage, died June 16th at the age of 56.

    Earlier this year, it was announced that Shider suffered from brain and lung cancer.

    Shider joined George Clinton’s P-Funk mob in 1972 as guitarist and quickly became an indispensable part of the incredibly large cast of musicians working under Clinton.

    He co-wrote and sang on several of Parliament and Funkadelic’s most memorable hits including “One Nation Under A Groove,” “Cosmic Slop,”  “Do That Stuff,” and George Clinton’s solo smash “Atomic Dog.”

    Check out Garry live with the P-Funk All-Stars in 1981 singing lead on “One Nation Under A Groove.”
