    Picture a bright blue ball just spinnin' spinnin' free. It's dizzy with possibility.

      you must apply some Eddie Hazel.  

      Having credibility when making an argument is the straightest path to persuasion.

      •  Eddie Hazel -- the ORIGINAL Funkadelic! (1+ / 0-)

        Billy (Bass) Nelson formed a band around Hazel's 'singing feedback.'

        Nelson was also backing up a doo-wop group called The Parliaments -- second tenor/producer George Clinton eventually brought the Funkadelic group into his entourage, made records under their name, and morphed the singing group into 'Parliament,' although everybody was in both bands.

        Yes, Funkmeisters Jimi Hendrix and Eddie Hazel met each other before the former's death. Hazel passed away from cancer in 1992. Billy Bass is still with us.
