But the introduction of LSD took him to the next level, as he built a funk empire with outrageous costumes, frequent band-name changes and an occasional bit of nudity.

Part 1 of 2. The self-proclaimed "King of Punk Funk," Rick James came from humble beginnings in Buffalo before hooking up with Neil Young while dodging the draft in Canada. With a penchant for pyrotechnics, glitter, custom boots and marijuana, his quest to become a black rock star reached its apex when a throwaway song, "Super Freak," topped the charts and gave him the fame he'd dreamed of.

Conclusion. In the mid-'80s, funk star Rick James was riding high on top of the music world. But between his rivalry with Prince, crusade against MTV and run-ins with the law, Rick fell further under the influence of cocaine. Even a shot at a comeback, when M.C. Hammer sampled his greatest hit, couldn't pull him back from the brink.

Bassist Bootsy Collins went from rocking out in Ohio to working with the notorious James Brown, who taught him "The One" funk basics. But it was when Bootsy met George Clinton that he created his larger-than-life persona and became the backbone of the P-Funk empire. As the frontman of Bootsy's Rubber Band, he quickly achieved solo stardom before realizing that what he loved most about music was the joy of just being part of a group.

Conclusion. At the height of his fame, James Brown reigned supreme as the king of funk, the first voice and innovator of a brand-new musical genre. Behind the scenes, he was a taskmaster, feuding with rivals as well as members of his own band. By the 1980s, the work ethic that propelled him to superstardom began to take its toll.

One of the biggest characters in funk history, Morris Day was an aspiring drummer who became the embodiment of cool. The iconic front man might have had a different life altogether, if not for childhood friend Prince Rogers Nelson, but he made a Faustian bargain with the future superstar, and the result was Morris Day and The Time. Though the band skyrocketed to the top with hits like "Jungle Love," resentment festered and the rivalry between the two singers reached a breaking point.

Season 2 finale. The queen of funk, Betty Davis should have been a superstar. A small-town Southern girl, she exploded onto the music scene in the early '70s after launching a career in New York as a fashion model and playing muse to Miles Davis, and her brief marriage to the jazz legend helped launch her career as a performer.

    Captivating true tales told by the musical performers who lived through the madness that accompanied their rise to the top of their industry.The documentary style presentation makes you feel like you are close friends with each of the storytellers. They give first hand accounts that reveal that no matter which genre of music and irregardless of talent, social status, race or star power the explosive world that accompanies these artists as they attempt to survive a world of endless drugs, sex and alcohol.
