Good Thoughts, Bad Thoughts
Eddie Hazel also played on Funkadelic's "Standing on the verge of getting it on" and co-authored all the songs (one time creditteed as E. Hazel, the rest as G. Cook.). Of that album , on"Good thoughts, bad thoughts" he playes another long epic guitar solo.
Question arises wther the credits G. Cook occured because of the money going to his mother and not to drugs?
I'm unable to find any information proving this but I would guess that is the case-Nsacks 21:32, 24 March 2007 (UTC)
The only reference I have found is a quote from George Clinton saying Eddie mother was credited for tax reasons but where P-funks concerned no one involved is a reliable witness and where credits are concerned there have been numerous disputes. But simply put G.Cook is 99% certainly Grace Cook Eddies mum, if he either ever recieved money from the credit or not is a different matter. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 15:34, 9 November 2007 (UTC)
Eddie's solo on Good Thoughts/Bad Thoughts is often referred to Maggot Brain part 2 with part 3 being Pray My Soul. It is my understanding that he credited it to G.Cook because the IRS was after him for back taxes. As a side note, the lyrics were coming together in 1968 after he had a conversation concerning religion and philosphy i.e. "why look outside yourself for God when the kingdom of heaven is within."Funk68 (talk) 06:03, 18 June 2009 (UTC)
