Parliament-Funkadelic Singer Fuzzy Haskins’ Cause of Death
Clarence Fuzzy Haskins’ cause of death has not been disclosed yet but sources confirmed that the original member of Parliament-Funkadelic passed away on March 17, 2023.
P-Funk mastermind George Clinton announced the heartbreaking news Saturday on social media. No cause of death was provided.
“We are saddened to announce the passing of an original Parliament-Funkadelic member Clarence Eugene ‘Fuzzy’ Haskins (born June 8, 1941-March 17th, 2023),” Clinton wrote.
Haskins’ former bandmate Bootsy Collins wrote: “Prayer’s going out to Clarence ‘Fuzzys’ Haskins family & friends. We lost his frequency today 3-17- 23.”
Collins added: “He was an original Parliament/Funkadelic inducted in the RHOF. We will miss u my friend, bandmate & Soul brother! Thx u for ur guidance in my pup year’s. Bootsy baby!!!”
Haskins’ P-Funk tenure dates back to when the singer and Clinton were members of the Sixties vocal group the Parliaments. The group ultimately morphed into Funkadelic and Parliament.
“Fuzzy wrote and co-wrote some of Funkadelic’s earliest classics, including ‘I Got A Thing’ (featuring his vocals) and ‘I Wanna Know If It’s Good To You,'” George Clinton’s website wrote of Haskins.
“He was a good drummer as well, as he proved on ‘Can You Get To That’which he also co-wrote. Some of Fuzzy’s best vocals appeared on Funkadelic’s 1972 LP America Eats Its Young, most notably on ‘Ms Lucifers Love.’ But singing wasn’t the only thing that Fuzzy brought to P-Funk.
“He was known, during live P-Funk shows, to don skin-tight bodysuits and gyrate against the microphone pole as he whipped the crowd into a frenzy, especially when they performed ‘Standing on the Verge of Getting it On.'”
