NEW YORK, Aug. 30 (UPI) -- Bootsy Collins says he "funked that mutha" and "tore down" holiday standards for his latest album, "WWBC (What Would Bootsy Do) on Christmas."

The album is first solo release for the Parliament/Funkadelic bassist since "Play With Bootsy" in 2002, RollingStone.com reported Tuesday.

"I went back and got some of the cats that were on that music scene: George Clinton, Bobby Womack, the Ohio Players' Sugarfoot," Collins told Rolling Stone. "We did 'Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,' which I call 'Boodolph the Gold-Toothed Reindeer.'"

Collins has been busy with guest appearances both on stage and in the studio, Rolling Stone said.

He helped Snoop Dogg out on "R and G" and hopped on stage to trade riffs with bassist Flea during a Red Hot Chili Peppers New York concert Aug. 20.
