Fun fact: detractors of the Erie Canal project called it "Clinton's Ditch". There is currently a Pepsi bottler and distributor that also goes by that name.

I'm vaguely aware that Hamilton was going to have a song sung by Governor George Clinton in the style of George Clinton, but it got scrapped for some reason and Google doesn't know what I'm talking about.

George Clinton was one of Hamilton's biggest political enemies, so it was a bit surprising he didn't make the musical.

Proof that things do indeed fall apart... those videos of the Mothership Connection tour posted upthread are of a show they did in the building that is now... Joel Osteen's church in Houston. Sad, really. From a supremely coked-up Dr Funkenstein himself (Bootsy's Rubber Band AND Sly and the Family Stone opened) to Faking the Funk.They should have torn it down after that show.

P-Funk is most definitely approved of here, especially when Bootsy Collins is in full-on Bootsy Collins mode (some of us old white boys like us some funk, especially when it is P-Funk bringing the funk).

Parliment's been a crossover on that kind of thing since it existed pretty much.  Hell even frat boys dig on them.  Resistance is futile

Yeah, I think half the reason I didn't find anything on Google was how relevant the real George Clinton was to the real Hamilton's life.
