Funkadelic. Cosmic Slop. 1971.

Damn, what I wouldn't give to be a fly on the wall in the tour bus with these crazy fuckers. I can't stress enough how underrated Eddie Hazel is as a guitar player. The dude was still a teenager when most of the blistering Funkadelic shit was produced. He was 17 years old on his first national tour with the band, and this was the kind of shit he was exposed to. Dudes wearing diapers and doing more blow and blotter acid than Dennis Hopper on an Aussie outback bender. It's a crying shame the Games, Dames and Guitar Thangs is his only solo output, but that album rips like few others.

Some dudes are just not meant to walk this earth for very long. They show up, blow our brain matter clear out the backs of our collective skulls and then go somewhere and die quietly.
