More Kudos for Chucky and Bootsy

Salt Lake City Weekly - Bootsy Claus: "There’s even a semi-novelty hit, when Bootsy teams with Charlie Daniels (“I named him Chucky, ’cause he’s funky”) for some space-bass-meets-fiddle funk. Only Bootsy Collins could make that sound good. "

Or perhaps, more likely, Charlie Daniels could make Bootsy Collins sound that good.

No Primadonnas: CDB is the nicest band in Delaware "Q: Who was the nicest band that came through?
Hands down the nicest people were the Charlie Daniels Band. It was all 'whenever you get a chance' and 'if you could, please.' Very southern, very gracious."

Compared to the other bands that have demanded no green M&Ms (the Pretenders) and servants (Kool and the Gang), the CDB is just as nice as pie. Check the article at the link above.
