Description
When I played with the Parliament Funkadelic there was a guy
who was the Musical genius behind it all, he was starting to
faze himself out of the party, when I joined in...
It's a hard life following George around, after a while you
just run out of steam an to this day he's still chugging
along, still doin it.....

He got off the road tryed to find something to do, an that's
when trouble finds you, trying to find something to do, when
all you know how to do is play Guitar an.....

He told me once that Music was more important to him, then
the air he breaths and that's how he lived... an died....

I'm talking about " Eddie Hazel " he wrote a ton of songs, one
stands out through the multitude called " Maggot Brain "....

Now I'm not Eddie there was, an will only be one of him, God
broke the mold when he came along.....

What he saw in the world yesterday, I still see in the world today
but for me there just Dummies, never did anything of importance
never been anywhere, never had to deal with the real life, the one
that can kick you into reality....

But they want everything, and think they can say an do anything, an
they think they know everything, the only thing right they'll ever do
is have someone feed them and die.....

.....He called you Maggot Brains, I call them Dummies....

.......This is a tribute to one of the Masters Eddie Hazel.....

Your guitar has grit
in the tone. Man, that thing screams!

A very enjoyable jam. The drum is a bit the same thing throughout, but the guitars make up for it.

Thanks a lot....

Vic.... Yes the drums do repeat, I must point out though
that Bach used the same format many times....
Your song ( Guards on the wall ) I think thats the name, is
of similar design, from classical to rock there is nothing we
can play that hasn't been played already....
Glad you like it....

Powerful energy coming from a deep place
Your work on both guitars and how they play off against each other is terrific. Bass is none too shabby either! Sounds like this was born from quite a journey. Really hits home.

Thanks,
Doug
