    Bootsy Collins recently shared the episode of Tales From The Tour Bus, about him on his Facebook page. It’s animated and done by Mike Judge, of Beavis and Butthead and King of the Hill!

    If you have 30 minutes and a Facebook account, it’s a must watch. It’s hilarious and a great piece of music history.

    I couldn’t find the full episode on YouTube, or I would have linked it here for all of you that don’t care for Facebook. And it just would have been easier..haha. Check it out if you can. It’s worth the watch.

    That was the best thing I've seen on Facebook in a LONG time. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Somebody here suggested TFTTB. I saw a promo for it and immediately signed up for CineMax. Well worth the money.
    They're all really good. So far our favorite is Blaze Foley, (although I doubt he ever had a tour bus.)

    You’re welcome!! I’m glad you enjoyed it. The James Brown parts of the story had me literally laughing out loud.

    Nice!! I’ll have to watch some others. There are full episodes available on YouTube that you have to pay for.

    Bootsy is always a delight. He has this goofy joyful ease to him. That was really fun

    Glad you liked it!! If you’re not “friends” or haven’t “liked” (hate the FB terms..haha) his page, do yourself a favor and do it. Nothing but positive posts from him. He posts not only music, but great animal posts, shares unknown musicians videos, and just always has a nice and kind vibe going on. One of my favorite parts of FB.

    I closed my Facebook account out a couple weeks ago. It was mostly a positive thing in my life, but overall i think it's a force for evil. Trying to get away from social media or manage it better

    I don’t blame you. It’s a soul sucker for sure. My oldest daughter recently stopped using all social media and she couldn’t be happier about it. I should do the same one day. Good for you!

    I've seen them all on HBO, great stuff. I've really liked everything that man does (Mike Judge; I do like Bootsy too, mostly Parliament/Funkadelic)

    The first season was about the more special Country artists, great one too!!!

    That Caspar stuff always cracked me up.

    But I'm still afraid to look at the YouTube gig.
