From time to time we really don’t understand how deeply affected and connected we are to artists until finally the day they die. Eddie Van Halen was a just one of a type. The day just after his dying Flea came into rehearsal with an emotional bassline. John, Chad and I started enjoying together and really before long with all our hearts, a song in his honor very easily unfolded. It felt good to be unfortunate and care so a lot about a individual who had offered so considerably to our life. Though the song doesn’t converse to Eddie by identify, it talks about his early times on the Sunset Strip and the rock n roll tapestry that Van Halen painted on our minds. In the conclude, our tune asks that you not recall Eddie for dying but for dwelling his wildest dream.
