P-Nut leeft nog

Mudbone Cooper schrijft op zijn Facebook-pagina dat P-Nut (nog) niet dood is. Hij spreekt er schande van dat mensen dat bericht hebben verspreid waardoor niet alleen Mudbone maar bijvoorbeeld ook George Clinton en Bootsy Collins in de veronderstelling verkeerden dat P-Nut is overleden. Dit is het volledige bericht van Mudbone:

I’m coming to all the FB people and social media folks everywhere who got hold to misleading and confusing info regarding P-nut Johnson, including me. My words I expressed remain the same but, I was just informed within this hour and don’t want to confuse anyone, that he was taken off ventilator today and is breathing on he’s own. But the doctors say his neurological injuries are too severe for recovery. So, we have to take it hour to hour, min to min.Shame on those that pass on misleading info.

De website UltimateClassicRock.com verwijst naar Bootsy Collins als bron van hun nieuwsbericht ‘P-Funk Singer Robert ‘P-Nut’ Johnson Dies‘. Jeff Giles schrijft:

No cause of death has been shared as of this writing, but word of Johnson’s death comes courtesy of Collins, who shared the news in a Facebook that included photos of the visually distinctive singer in action as well as a few words of praise in honor of a talent that became a mainstay of the constantly shifting lineups in Clinton’s collective.

“We lost another one to that other frequency. Mr. Robert P-Nut Johnson,” reads Collins’ post. “Born in Baltimore in 1947, P-Nut started on the road with Bootsy’s Rubber Band and in the studio with P-Funk in 1976. When Bootsy stopped touring in 1979, P-Nut segued to P-Funk. Prior to joining Bootsy’s Rubber Band and P-Funk, P-Nut played with local bands in the Baltimore area. Share yr condolences for his family & friends. Another P-Funk legend R.I.P.”
