    Cholly Bassoline is absolutely a real person. He was a manager of the parliment funkadelics and he resides in Easton Pennsylvania. He is one of the sweetest men I have ever met. Have a funky day!

    Greetings fellow funkateers!

    When I saw the discussion on who Cholly is (from Funk Gettin' Ready to Roll) I hoped it would put to rest my all-time p-funk question of

    "Who is Cholly Bassoline?"

    Cholly Bassoline, of course, is always in the "Thank Yous" on all
    the Parliament, Funkadelic, Horny Horns, etc. albums; I can't think
    of an album that doesn't have this name listed. Anyway, lacking a
    better answer, I always figured he was a made up person with some
    historical significance (the Cholly part) and the pun off of
    'Bass Line' (the Bassoline part). And that when the song Cholly
    came out, it was in reference to this same person.

    If someone could help out a confused funkateer! ;)

    Peace and Funkiness,
