Clyde StubblefieldFunk music legend Clyde Stubblefield needs our help. Clyde's innovative beats on many James Brown hits set a standard for funk drumming and, through sampling, have heavily influenced the direction of hip-hop and drum & bass music. Today Clyde continues to perform while receiving intensive weekly dialysis treatment since his kidneys failed in July 2009.

Just last month, in July 2010, The Coalition for Clyde Stubblefield — an artist & industry association of Clyde's supporters — was founded by drummers Stanton Moore, Johnny Rabb and David Stanoch to spread word of Clyde's situation and new avenues being created expressly for donating financial support directly to him.

Clyde continues to work and perform regularly while dealing with the stress his kidney dialysis treatments demand.
