The most prodigious, soul-infected guitarist of the twentieth century. Eddie Hazel played for Parliament/Funkadelic, until the mid 70s, when drug use finally caught up with him. He continued to play for George Clinton's bands during the late seventies and eighties, releasing a solo album, "Games, Dames, and Guitar Thangs," in 1977. He died in 1992.
If you like Jimi Hendrix, you'll love Eddie Hazel.
One of the most influential, underrated and soulful guitarists of all times. Creator of the heavenly "Maggot Brain" guitar solo track from Funkadelic's record of the same name. Eddie can be compared to Jimi Hendrix. Pity alchohol and drugs got the better of him.
Ignorant Fool: Slash' November Rain is the best solo ever.
Wiseman: Eddie Hazel's "Maggot Brain" beats it by a light year.
Ignorant Fool: You mean to say Eddie is better than Slash (angrily)
Wiseman: No point saying that to an idiot
