Speaking of Red Hot Chili Peppers, the band paid a very special tribute to the late rocker Eddie Van Halen with a very special single.
Van Halen was a man who was also described by Chili Peppers’ frontman Anthony Kiedes as “one of a kind”.
“Sometimes we don’t realize how deeply affected and connected we are to artists until the day they die. Eddie Van Halen was a one of a kind”, Kiedes said.
“The day after his death Flea came into rehearsal with an emotional bassline. John, Chad and I started playing along and pretty soon with all our hearts, a song in his honor effortlessly unfolded. It felt good to be sad and care so much about a person who had given so much to our lives”, he continued.
“Although the song doesn’t speak to Eddie by name, it talks about his early days on the Sunset Strip and the rock n roll tapestry that Van Halen painted on our minds. In the end, our song asks that you not remember Eddie for dying but for living his wildest dream”.
