Heart’s Nancy Wilson is set to release her first solo album in May – and it includes a special tribute to the late Eddie Van Halen. The album’s final track is an instrumental titled “4 Edward”, a song Wilson says was inspired by meeting Eddie in the 80’s – and giving him his first acoustic guitar. Wilson said Eddie praised her acoustic playing, and when she asked why he didn’t play more acoustic he admitted he didn’t own one. Nancy gave him a guitar from her own collection, and says Eddie he called her hotel room the next morning with “this beautiful piece of acoustic guitar instrumental music on the phone.”

Wilson shared this story with Lamont & Tonelli, which you can listen to here.
