More music from The Wild Life! Here’s what we call “Driving Song,” a really nice guitar track from the 1984 movie The Wild Life. This has never been heard in full until now. (This track was only played for a few seconds, about 27 minutes into the movie, as Eric Stoltzs’ character Bill was driving his truck).
This piece, played on a stratocaster, reinforces the true nature of Eddie’s brilliance. Simple and clean and with great progression—he doesn’t need anything other than the strings. Enjoy!
More exclusive tracks on the way! The Van Halen News Desk will be releasing most of Ed’s music from The Wild Life film score throughout the coming weeks, via our Van Halen Vault youtube channel (subscribe here). These are the full, raw tracks that Eddie recorded, before they were edited for use in the movie. These complete tracks have never been heard anywhere before! So stay tuned, track #10 is coming soon! (Others we released so far: “Out The Window,“ “Top Down,” “Back To School,” “(Nearly) Good Enough,” “All Fired Up,” “Peeping Tom,” “Fashion Dynasty,” and “Love Song.)” Listen to all of them on our ‘The Wild Life’ page.
