Eddie Hazel

“Maggot Brain" was a feeling. Getting off a fucking airplane, man, and walking down Broadway in New York with my guitar on my back and not really feeling good. So now I walk in the studio, and they say, “Eddie play,” and I just played. That’s where it came from. One take.

Funkadelic - Maggot Brain (Live, 1985)

A lot of comparison has been made between “Awaken, My Love!” and Maggot Brain. Donald has stated that Maggot Brain was his father’s most played album when he was growing up. Maggot Brain is a funk album by the group Funkadelic, lead by George Clinton, who also appeared on Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly.

The title track to this George Clinton project is focused on Eddie Hazel’s astonishingly brilliant guitar improvisation. You gotta hear this.
