Collins has collaborated extensively with Bill Laswell and made bright appearances on two Fatboy Slim records. MTV biography (http://www.mtv.com/bands/az/capone_noreaga/bio.jhtml). Most of Bootsy's albums in the post-Parliament and Funkadelic days were released under the name Bootsy's Rubber Band.
Bootsy's Rubber Band is a part of the P Funk umbrella of bands. When Bootsy, Catfish, Waddy, Joel Johnson, Mudbone Cooper, Robert Johnson and The Horny Horns formed Bootsy's Rubber Band in 1976, the character of Bootsy evolved into Bootzilla, a rhinestone-bedecked, flashy rock god. He also took the name "Bootsy" during this time, adopting it as part of an ever-evolving character, an alien rock star who grew gradually more alien, bizarre and flashy as time went on (see P Funk mythology). His bass playing was hard, driving and rhythmic, and has been very influential in the development of Funk, Heavy Metal and Soul music.
