Funk Brothers To Finally Get Their Star

Funk Brothers to get star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

The role of the Funk Brothers is described in Paul Justman’s 2002 documentary film Standing in the Shadows of Motown, based on Allan Slutsky’s book of the same name. The opening titles claim that the Funk Brothers have “played on more number-one hits than The Beatles, Elvis Presley, The Rolling Stones, and The Beach Boys combined.”

THIS is called “justice”.

    It is about time, but what they really deserve is the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. These guys were w/o peer in my book. Motown music has an unforgettable backtrack that still hasn’t been touched.
