Eddie Hazel Is Fire...

The song "Maggot Brain" by Funkadelic...purely epic.
I 1st heard this song in the middle of the movie "Hell Ride" caught me instantly. It touches your soul. If it doesn' don't have a soul...point-blank.
I recently heard it again while watching a new episode of "House M.D." last week.
So I did some digging around and found it. The whole song is a guitar solo. It has so much pain into it. If something was to happen to me I want this song played at my funeral. In it's 10 minute play length, it captures all what I feel in my heart...this song alone could be the perfect soundtrack to my life.

When I 1st heard the guitar I thought automatically of Jimi Hendrix.
But apparently, the late Eddie Hazel was the poet behind the strings this time.
He blacked on that guitar...went in...murdered get the picture I'm painting. He has become my 2nd favorite guitarist for this song, alone.

Do your musical-soul a favor and check it out for yourself.

Rest In Peace
Eddie Hazel
...and thank you for this musical gem.

::Side Note::
If anyone has Eddie Hazel's solo album entitled "Game, Dames and Guitar Thangs", please send me a link. It is extremely rare.
