Dropping today (September 23rd) is Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ new tribute to Eddie Van Halen, titled, “Eddie.” Ultimate Classic Rock transcribed some of the song’s lyrics featured on the Twitter tease of the track, which include the lines: “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?”

“Eddie” will be featured on the band’s upcoming double album, Return Of The Dream Canteen, which drops on October 14th.

Red Hot Chili Peppers perform on Sunday (September 25th) at Louisville, Kentucky’s Louder Than Life Festival.


  • In May 2022, Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ 12th studio album, Unlimited Love, debuted at Number One, marking the band’s first chart-topper since 2006’s Stadium Arcadium.
