Biography

Edward Earl Hazel (April 10, 1950 – December 23, 1992) was an American guitarist and singer in early funk music who played lead guitar with Parliament-Funkadelic. Hazel was a posthumous inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, inducted in 1997 with fifteen other members of Parliament-Funkadelic. His ten-minute guitar solo in the Funkadelic song “Maggot Brain” is hailed as “one of the greatest solos of all time on any instrument”. In 2015, Rolling Stone ranked Hazel at no. 83 in its list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists.
