Biography

Freekbass (born Chris Sherman, formerly known as Freebass) has collaborated with funk legend, Bootsy Collins, for several projects, the most recent being Freekbass’, The Air Is Fresher Underground, released in late October, 2003. Underground features guest appearances by Bootsy, Catfish Collins, Buckethead, Bernie Worrell and a few of the Woo Warriors, to name a few. This is Freekbass’ second album to be executive produced by Bootsy, the first being Body Over Mind, Gemini/Bootzilla, 2001.

The whole Freekbass story, however, goes back to the very first “Bootsy” collaboration. In the mid ‘90’s, Freekbass had co-founded the group “SHAG”, a solid-roots funk band. During this time, he was introduced to Gary “Muggbone” Cooper, who asked Freekbass and SHAG guitarist, Chris Donnelly, to play on a compilation Jimi Hendrix tribute album for P-Vine Records, Japan. Coincidentally, the recording session was to take place at Bootzilla Rehab Studios, recording den of none other than Boosty Collins. Freekbass and his guitarist, both named “Chris”, were immediately dubbed “Chris Bass” and “Chris Guitar” by Bootsy, in order to not get them confused. But it was when “Chris Bass” laid down his bass tracks that Bootsy called out: “Play that Freaky Bass, Baba!” … Bootsy has called him Freekbass from that moment on … It was the beginning of an inspirational and enduring friendship that continues today.
