Eddie Hazel is the phenom guitarist that is known for his career with the legendary Parliament-Funkadelic. He was supposed to go on tour with the surviving members of the Band of Gypsies after Hendrix died, but Hazel himself succumbed to a drug induced heart attack too early for that to ever happen. It was just too good of an idea to ever happen, so it never did.
When Eddie left, guitar virtuoso Michael Hampton took his place. But this is a prime example of visceral feeling highly overpowering technical skill. Hampton has fast runs but loses the essential element that made Eddie fit so well into Funkadelic: feeling.
This ain't yo daddy's funk.
