What do you get when you combine a thirty-second spoken introduction from an obviously spaced-out George Clinton with a ten-minute guitar solo?
Why, that’s easy: “Maggot Brain”.

Eddie Hazel could shred like nobody’s bidness. I’m partial to this one:

Perfect for Maggot Week. I’d like to hear this in Sanford late in the fourth, while we’re running the score up.
After we have turned the “Atomic Dawg” loose on their asses.

Senator, it’s a shame you can’t see the Tales from the tour bus episode about George Clinton. Best story was how the band was driving to a gig outside of Pittsburgh, all tripping on acid, and they wound up surrounded by zombies. Clinton said he was screaming and pissed himself he was so freaked out. Turns out, they drove through the middle of the filming of “Night of the living dead”.
I’d like to add my strong recommendation to watch “Tales from the Tour Bus” Great stories, very well done.
Also, check out the episodes on Rick James.
Great stuff and hilarious.
Jimmy Herring did a nice job on this one with the Panic in Charlotte a few New Year’s Eves back…
Supposedly George Clinton told Eddie Hazel, under the influence of LSD at the time, to play “like your mama just died”.
That whole album is great.
My personal favorite:
