When you turn on your stereo, does it return the favor?

Eddie Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Sailing the Sunset Strip, 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?

[Chorus]
Please don’t remember me, for what I did last night, oh
Please don’t remember me
Lord and children
Please don’t remember me, it’s only 1980
It’s only 1983
[Verse 2]
Smoking the reefer, feeling my own light
My brother’s a keeper, I married a TV wife
The devil’s Camaro, parked in thе high school lot
A little sombrero ’cause tеacher was way too hot

[Chorus]
Please don’t remember me, for what I did last night, oh
Please don’t remember me
Listen Lord now
Please don’t remember me, it’s only 1980
It’s only 1983

[Bridge]
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
GTO’s tried to kiss me
One more song, they have seen it all

[Guitar Solo]

[Chorus]
Please don’t remember me, for what I did last night, oh
Please don’t remember me
What’d I say Lord?
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

I guess, as artists, your outlet is unique to you and your band. Eddie passed and they got together and wrote this song with their emotions. I’ll give them the credit for honoring Eddie. I don’t really see or hear the link, but I’m not a big fan/follower of the RHCP. They’re honoring Ed. I say thank you to them. If we had every band recording boogie rock songs and finger tapping it would be pretty sterile. Let’s let them pay homage in their own musical voice and respect that.

RIP EVH
