Gary Shider Dies

Gary Shider was the guy in Funkadelic wearing the diaper. We all saw him at one time or another and that was his official uniform on stage. I was a very unique signature for a dynamic musician and singer.

He died on June 16th at 56. He left quite a legacy of music as the musical director for Parliament Funkadelic.

He also was among 16 members of Parliament Funkadelic, including George Clinton, who were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997.

He is survived by his wife of 32 years, Linda.
