  Eddie Hazel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Eddie Hazel (April 10, 1950 – December 23, 1992) was a pioneering guitarist in early funk music in the United States.
She worked in Brooklyn as a silk presser; Eddie occupied himself from a young age by playing a guitar, given to him as a Christmas present by his older brother, as well as singing in church.
Nelson, Hazel and Fulwood became the backbone of Funkadelic, which was originally the backup band for The Parliaments, only to later become an independent touring group when legal difficulties forced the group to (temporarily) abandon the name "Parliaments".

 ALBUM REVIEW
Hazel's guitar playing on the original three Funkadelic albums was mind melting, as he'd fluidly shift from rock riffs to funk rhythms to spacy, jamming guitar solos without so much as a hitch in his playing.
Hazel plays around with rhythmic guitar stretches for a while, though a little after six minutes in, he gives up and serves up more impressive lead guitar work that suffers through a false fade; when the track pans back up into the speakers, he decides to go back at it again not long afterwards.
Eddie Hazel was essentially funk-rock's Jimi Hendrix; sadly, in 2004, the same question plagues both of them: Without the drugs and alcohol...

 One Nation P-Funk Page: Eddie Hazel
Eddie takes the listener through every emotion known from fear to lust, pleasure to pain, serenity to anger, love to hate and turns them into one of the most tear jerkin and gut wrenching performances on tape.
Eddie left P-Funk in 1974 to work as a Motown guitarist/composer, most notably playing on the Temptations' albums (A Song For You, 1975, and Wings of Love, 1976) and serving as musical director for Bonnie Pointer and Chairmen Of The Board before returning to the P-Funk Mothership in the early 80's.
Eddie played and sang with such emotion that he was often ridiculed by other members of the mob for crying whilst performing in the studio.

 Funkadelic Guitarist : Eddie Hazel..In Memorium@TheFunkStore.com
Though born in Brooklyn on April 10, 1950, Eddie Hazel grew up outside the city in Plainfield, NJ, since his mother, Grace Cook, didn't want her son growing up in a negative, drug-littered environment (though, ironically, Plainfield wasn't much better in regards to drugs).
Hazel returned from exile for 1974's Standing on the Verge of Getting It On, with strong guitar contributions and co-writing credits with George Clinton on every track, but by the next album (Let's Take It to the Stage), Hazel was taking a secondary role to the new roster of Parliament/Funkadelic guitarists.
Following this album, Hazel continued to play with Clinton in successive years, but his contributions were never major, and he slowly descended further into oblivion, eventually suffering from chronic stomach problems and ultimately dying on December 23, 1992, from internal bleeding and liver failure.

Eddie Hazel's Games, Dames and Guitar Thangs has long been a holy grail of sorts for real funkateers, as it was the only thing released under Hazel's name while he was still alive, and it's been out of print for years.
Hazel totally makes the song his own by slowing it down and adding an even more pronounced sense of longing, then there's the wicked molten guitar leads that are worth the price of admission alone.
Hazel was an undeniable guitar genius, but his troubled lifestyle led to a dearth of material that really showed his strengths.

 Eddie Hazel - Game, Dames And Guitar Thangs - from Rhino Handmade
Named one of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time by both Rolling Stone and Mojo, Brooklyn native Eddie Hazel was the original lead guitarist for George Clinton's wildly influential funk-rock ensemble Funkadelic.
After the split with Funkadelic, Hazel played on sessions for The Temptations, contributing to their Norman Whitfield-inspired hit "Standin' On (Shakey Ground)," which signaled the vocal group's move from the Motown Sound to psychedelic soul.
Hazel's hard living eventually caught up with him -- he died in 1992 of liver and kidney failure.

 Detailed info on Eddie Hazel's _Game, Dames and Guitar Thangs_   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
I am a huge Eddie Hazel fan, and this album allows him to really show his chops and even sing a bit, which he didn't do much of after the first few Funkadelic albums.
Eddie's spacey-sounding guitar is in effect, and it matches perfectly with Boogie's solid bass playing, Bernie's keyboards, Jerome's frantic drumming, and the background vocals from the Brides.
The cover is amazing, a collage of Eddie with his Gibson in one hand and a sword in the other, riding a horse in a sort of outer-space environment.

Soon after, Clinton became equally frustrated with Hazel's and Fulwood's growing drug abuse, often cutting off their pay so that they wouldn't go spend it on illicit substances.
Hazel returned from exile for 1974's Standing on the Verge of Getting It On, with strong guitar contributions and co-writing credits with George Clinton on several songs, but by the next album (Let's Take It to the Stage), Hazel was taking a secondary role to the new roster of Parliament/Funkadelic guitarists.
While Hazel's role in Parliament/Funkadelic had diminished by the late '70s, Clinton did grant him the opportunity to record a solo album for Warner Brothers, 1977's Games, Dames and Guitar Things.

 Julian Cope Presents Head Heritage | Unsung | Reviews | Eddie Hazel - Games, Dames & Guitar Thangs
I am a HUGE Eddie Hazel fan, and unfortunately, because of the failure of snooty record execs to recognize a golen idol waiting to be resurrected, most folks of all ages don't even know who he is! This was further enhanced by Eddie's pseudo-mythological status as a member of George Clinton's Parliament/Funkadelic collective.
Eddie's spacey-sounding guitar is in full effect, and is matched in a marathon race with his funk/soul brothers Bootsy "Boogie" Collins (bass), Bernie Worrell (resident ivory tickler), Jerome Bailey (drums), and the backing vocals provided by Lynn and Dawn [the Brides of Funkenstein].
The cover art is incredible, a 70's-style collage featuring Eddie with his beloved Gibson Les Paul in one hand, and a medieval sword in the other; while riding a horse in an inner-stellar space environment.

 Fluxblog Is Just A Phantom Waiting To Be Gripped
So when Hazel got released from Lompoc in '77 and rejoined his former bandmates to record Guitar Thangs, there was the inevitability that sooner or later he'd have to meet up with his replacement.
Most of the song's dominated by this keep-disco-evil groove, a brief minimalist Hazel solo (done twice) and the intertwined free-fall chords notwithstanding -- it's a song mostly built on the intricacies of the guitar as a rhythm instrument, and Hazel doesn't even break out the real wailing until the three-minute mark of a three-and-three-quarter-minute song.
As a contrast of styles between Hazel and Hampton, it's not a big success: the guitars weave in and out from between each others' empty spaces, meshing tight and proving inseparable.

 Funkadelic: Maggot Brain ---Ink Blot Magazine
The group became a vehicle for the experimental, less commercial side of Clinton's musical vision, releasing records that were challenging, political, and musically abrasive at a time when popular music was becoming increasingly homogenized.
But don't let the name of the band, or their color, or the age of this album fool you: Eddie Hazel recorded - in one take - the solo against which all other solos would be measured if he hadn't been African American.
The story on Maggot Brain is that George Clinton, out of his mind on Yellow Sunshine, told Hazel to play the first half of the song as if he had just heard that his own mother was dead, and then the second half as if he had found out she was alive.
