    George Clinton is asking his fans to help him raise $50,000 to preserve his recording studio in Florida. Clinton has had financial problems for years so he wouldn't be asking if he didn't need the help.

    The Parliament-Funkadelic frontman, 70, is using online fundraising website IndieGoGo to encourage devotees to contribute to the cause and aid the "restoration and preservation of original recordings, as well as urgent repairs and upgrades to the Parliament-Funkadelic family recording studio." So if you can donate, please do. You'll be preserving music history if you do.

    Clinton is offering signed CDs, T-shirts and other memorabilia in exchange for donations, so donating will earn you more than good deed points.

    Rewards increase depending on how much you donate. If you can donate $5,000, a pair of concert passes for all Parliament-Funkadelic shows for a year will be offered. If you can donate $10,000, you will get yourself a chance to collaborate with Clinton in the studio.

    The online fund drive runs through April 16. It has raised $3,300 so far. So if you have the means, please donate.

    Are you able to donate and to help George Clinton preserve his studio? More info at IndieGoGo.
