Today’s NYTimes has an article about the memorial service for Isaac Hayes. I can only hope for a memorial that features musical interludes by Chick Corea, Kirk Whalum and Doug E. Fresh (but I’ll pass on orations from Revs. Jesse & Al). The best part was this description of Bootsy Collins’ funeral attire: “a get-up involving wide pinstripes, a kerchief, and rhinestone-coated sunglass lenses with peepholes in the shape of stars. . .”
Of course, they had to provide a photograph of said get-up:

I think it makes him look more like Lil Jon than the Bootsy I know and love:
But I guess the event called for decorum.
