Red Hot Chili Peppers Pay Tribute To Eddie Van Halen With New Song ‘Eddie’

Red Hot Chili Peppers pay tribute to the late Eddie Van Halen through their new song, “Eddie.”

“Sometimes we don’t realize how deeply affected and connected we are to artists until the day they die,” RHCP singer Anthony Kiedis wrote on Instagram, introducing the band’s tribute to the iconic guitarist.

“Eddie Van Halen was a one of a kind,” he continued. “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.”

Kiedis noted that the song doesn’t speak “Eddie by name” but instead weaves in signposts from throughout EVH’s life, including Los Angeles’ Sunset Strip and “the rock n roll tapestry that Van Halen painted on our minds.”

Kiedis concluded his post, writing, “In the end, our song asks that you not remember Eddie for dying but for living his wildest dream.”

The song is part of the band’s upcoming album, Return of the Dream Canteen, which is set to arrive on October 14.
