Funkadelic – Maggot Brain

October 16, 2011 § Leave a comment

The third album’s title song, “Maggot Brain“, consists of a ten-minute guitar solo by Hazel. Clinton reportedly told Hazel during the recording session to imagine he had been told his mother was dead, but then learned that it was not true.[1] Music critic Greg Tate described it as Funkadelic’s A Love Supreme.[1] In 2008, Rolling Stone cited this as number 60 on its list of 100 greatest “guitar songs” of all time.[2]
