(TeamRock Radio) Keyboard icon Bernie Worrell has died at the age of 72. The Parliament-Funkadelic star - who also worked with Talking Heads - passed away on Friday after a battle with cancer.

In a Facebook post, Worrell's wife Judie confirmed the death. She says: "Bernie transitioned Home to The Great Spirit. Rest in peace, my love - you definitely made the world a better place."

P-Funk pioneer Worrell revealed earlier this year that he was fighting lung cancer and his wife set up a fundraising page to help pay for his medical bills.

Parliament-Funkadelic leader George Clinton says: "This is a huge loss. The world of music will never be the same. Bernie's influence and contribution - not just to funk but also rock and hip hop - will forever be felt." Read more here.
