Heart guitarist Nancy Wilson performs Eddie Van Halen tribute

Heart guitarist Nancy Wilson is sharing video of an intimate performance of a tribute to Eddie Van Halen entitled “4 Edward”, that will appear on her forthcoming album, “You And Me.”

“Here is my tribute and storyteller performance for the late, great Eddie,” shares Wilson, while recounting the tale of touring with Van Halen in the 1980s and gifting the iconic rocker with an acoustic guitar from her collection.

Eddie passed away last October at the age of 65 after a lengthy battle with cancer.

Due May 7, “You And Me” was recorded primarily in Wilson’s California home studio as she worked remotely with band members and special guests Sammy Hagar, Duff McKagan, Taylor Hawkins and Liv Warfield.

The project delivers a mix of original tunes and covers of Pearl Jam’s “Daughter,” Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Boxer”, the Cranberries“Dreams”, and the set’s lead single, Wilson’s take on Bruce Springsteen’s 2002 track, “The Rising.”
