One of the funkiest, rockinest acts on the Planet..rockin U funky Fresh!


Gary “MUDBONE” Cooper

The man with a distinctive style and creativity behind many of the major P-Funk hits. This multi-platinum selling artist in his own right is the person that some of the biggest names in the history of “Modern Music” turn to for inspiration.

"I’d Rather Be With You”, co-written by Mudbone and originally recorded with Bootsy Collins, happens to be one of Mudbone’s biggest selling records, and one of the most sampled songs of all times. This song has been sampled by the likes of Dr Dre, Beyoncé Knowles, Snoop Dogg, Sugababes, Adina Howard and countless others, proving to be a milestone in the history of funk music and a major cornerstone in hip hop.

His amazing skills lead him to deliver the classic beat and backing vocals on the mega P-Funk hit “Atomic Dog”, setting new standards for countless rappers and hip hoppers including Dr Dre.

“Let’s Go All The Way,” the debut single from Sly Fox (written and performed by Mudbone), was a straight up multi-million seller, and so far ahead of its time that even today the song is still sampled, leaving many wondering how those sounds were ever created.

Mudbone has also collaborated with many of the world's leading artists, including Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Prince, Dave Stewart, Bob Dylan, Bono (U2), Brian May (Queen), Jimmy Cliff, The Ramones, just to name a few.

He co-wrote “Freedom’s Coming” with Dave Stewart (of Eurythmics fame) to raise money for the Nelson Mandela Foundation for the fight against HIV/AIDS in South Africa.

Also, he has written, produced and performed music for major films, TV series and commercials, writing and co-writing the music for the popular French cartoon series “Funky Cops”. One of his recent success ventures was writing and a performance in the Paramount Pictures soundtrack for the film “Alfie", starring British Film star Jude Law. Currently his voice can be heard frequently in ads that use "We Want The Funk", which his vocal presence is without fail unique and distinguished.

Mudbone's assembled a cast of dynamically impressive musicians to form his own group, “Mudbone & OffTheChain”, which includes Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame member Billy “Bass” Nelson, the original bassist/vocalist and co- founding member of the group Funkadelic.
