Clinton was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997 with fifteen other members of Parliament-Funkadelic. The band was also named the 56th Greatest Rock n' Roll Artists of All Time by Rolling Stone. Clinton was also awarded an honorary doctorate from Berklee College of Music. He continues to tour and even collaborated with Sly Stone (2010) on a single called The Naz, a track which tells the story of Jesus Christ.
Clinton married Stephanie Lynn in 1990.
