Summary : Fresh Air, Bootsy Collins and Linda Gray Sexton (Nonfiction)

Musician Bootsy Collins and author Linday Gray Sexton, on this archive edition of Fresh Air. Bootsy Collins got his start with James Brown, where he "defined the finger-popping funk bass style" (Rolling Stone). He went on to work with George Clinton as part of the Parliment-Funkadelic tribe, before forming Bootsy's Rubber Band. On stage, he created alter egos, including Bootzilla, Boot-Tron, and King of the Geepies. He's put out more than 30 albums, and this interview was just after he released Blasters of the Universe with a new band. Linda Gray Sexton has just written Searching for Mercy Street: My Journey Back to My Mother, Anne Sexton, her seventh book. She spent a long time coming to terms with her relationship with her mother, who committed suicide in 1974. (Original Broadcast Date: October 10, 1994)
