Clyde Stubblefield started his musical career as a child in Chattanooga, TN, "playing on tin can lids, pasteboard boxe—everything." Since then Clyde has played all over the world and recorded with some of the greatest funk, soul, and R&B performers including James Brown, Otis Redding, and Clayton Fillyau.
While recording and performing with James Brown, Clyde joined John "Jab'o" Starks and they became known as the funkiest men alive. Clyde recorded "Funky Drummer". He and Jab'o are the most sampled drum tracks in the world.
Recently, Clyde and Jab'o have appeared on the cover of Modern Drummer and Stick It Magazines
