    Default Chili Peppers Tease Eddie Van Halen Tribute Song “Eddie”

    https://americansongwriter.com/red-h...te-song-eddie/



    Red Hot Chili Peppers have teased the release of a new song called “Eddie,” which will be out Sept. 23, and was inspired by the late guitarist Eddie Van Halen.

    “Our new song ‘Eddie’ is out on Friday,’ wrote Flea, along with a near one-minute clip of the song. “It’s one of my favorites—triggers the depths in me every time.”

    The 57-second clip, shared on the band’s Twitter and Instagram pages, opens on John Frusciante’s melodic guitar with singer Anthony Kiedis coming in at the 30-second mark singing Sailing the Sunset Strip / I’m a bit of a king / Granny would take a trip / I’ll be bending the strings / Got hammers in both my hands / Such a delicate touch / They say I’m from Amsterdam / Does that make me Dutch?”
    "The less I needed, the better I felt." ~ Charles Bukowski.

    I didn't think much of it until I heard the full high quality version. I dig the solo and enjoyed the last 3 min of the song. Not a fan of that band or was expecting an EVH tribute, but its pretty decent.

    Love it, great song and I do love the RHCP. Kind of surprised they did a tribute song to Eddie but cool. That solo was an amazing homage to Eddie.

    I think RHCP are talented but not my favorite. However really cool of them to do it and its actually a good song.

    An LA band paying homage to an LA band.

    I like it.

    I use to really dig the early RHCP albums up to probably Mothers Milk. Wore the fuck out of my Freaky Styley tape.

    I know a lot of people like them, but it sounds like every song they've put out in the last 20 plus years. Cool they did it though

    Yeah! There's some good stuff on BSSM but I didn't like much if any after that even though I kept buying the CD's up to Californication ... which I do not like. I was done with them after that.

    Thumbs up

    "Eddie"

    I sail in the sunset's trail
    I'm a bit of a king
    Granny would take a trip
    I've been bending the strings
    Got hammers in both my hands
    Such a delicate touch
    They say I'm from Amsterdam
    Does that make me Dutch?

    Please don't remember me
    For what I did last night, oh
    Please don't remember me
    Love them children
    Please don't remember me
    It's only 1980, it's only 1983

    Smoking the reefer
    Feeling my own light
    My brother's a keeper
    I married a TV wife
    The devil's Camaro
    Parked in the high school lot
    A little sombrero
    'Cause teacher was way too hot

    Please don't remember me
    For what I did last night, oh
    Please don't remember me
    Listen to Lord now
    Please don't remember me
    It's only 1980, it's only 1983

    Tell my love "But leave me never"
    Can't complain about the weather
    Snowing at the rainbow, have a ball
    Cut my teeth down at the whiskey
    GTOs tried to kiss me
    One more song, they have seen it all

    Please don't remember me
    For what I did last night, oh
    Please don't remember me
    What'd I say, oh?
    Please don't remember me
    It's only 1980, it's only 1983
    Please don't remember me
    For what I did with David
    You know I'm talkin' David Lee
    Am I ready?
    Please don't remember me
    For what I did last night, oh
    I guess I played a Flying V

    This is a nice thing they did here. Classy and good stuff.

    Thanks Robbie for that song link.

    Wow, those lyrics are comically awful, but I bet they make it work. Looking forward to hearing this!

    It works. It's cool. Let's not rip on a good thing.

    if you don't have anything nice to say...

    This all got me on an early era Pepper kick today.

    Fuck! I forgot how cool some of the guitar, drums and bass were back then.

    The first album... Green Heaven... bOOm! Then the horns right after in Mommy Where's Daddy... pOw!
