Eddie Hazel Timeline

In 1967, the Parliaments, a Plainfield-based doo wop band headed by George Clinton, had a hit record with "(I Wanna) Testify." Clinton recruited a backing band for a tour, hiring Nelson as bassist, who in turn recommended Hazel as guitarist.
Funkadelic (1970), Free Your Mind.
Nelson and Hazel officially quit Funkadelic in late 1971 over financial disputes with Clinton, though Hazel contributed to the group sporadically over the next several years.
The albums America Eats Its Young (1972) and Cosmic Slop (1973) featured only marginal input from Hazel.
For the 1974 Funkadelic album Standing on the Verge of Getting It On, Hazel co-wrote all of the album's songs.
One song that featured Hazel's lead guitar is "Comin' Round the Mountain" on Hardcore Jollies (1976).
