Heart guitarist Nancy Wilson says her solo album, which is expected to release later this year, will feature a song paying tribute to the late Eddie Van Halen.
“I have an instrumental song on this album called ‘For Edward,’ which is dedicated to Eddie Van Halen,” Nancy said on Hawaii Public Radio.
Nancy said she “was the first one to ever give him an acoustic guitar” when Heart toured alongside the Van Halen founder.
“Early the next morning, in the hotel, back when people would ring your room, he rang my room and he played for me this beautiful piece of acoustic guitar instrumental music on the phone. I was so touched, and it was so beautiful, it was one of the prettiest things I’d ever heard. So I tried to return the favor by making a beautiful little tribute to him,” Nancy recalled.
The upcoming album, which is said to be titled You and Me, will include covers of Bruce Springsteen’s “The Rising,” Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Boxer” and Pearl Jam’s “Daughter.”
