----------------------------------------
Command python setup.py egg_info failed with error code 1
Storing complete log in /root/.pip/pip.log

La razón es falta de dependencias, tenemos que instalar el mysql-server y lo más importante para solucionar el error es instalar el paquete libmysqlclient-dev

Lo instalamos con apt:

apt-get install libmysqlclient-dev

También para evitar otros errores con pip necesitamos instalar el paquete de desarrollo de python:

apt-get install python-dev

Luego de eso ya podemos instalar mysql-python:

pip install MySQL-python
