A Tear For Eddie — Ween

Wikipedia says: Ween is an alternative rock band formed in New Hope, Pennsylvania, in 1984 by childhood friends Aaron Freeman and Mickey Melchiondo, better known by their respective stage names, Gene Ween and Dean Ween. After meeting in a middle-school typing class, the two began playing music and immediately chose the name Ween as well as their Ramones-inspired pseudonyms. Ween performed as a duo backed by a Digital Audio Tape for the band’s first ten years of existence before expanding to a four- (and later five-) piece act. The band’s highest charting single is “Push th’ Little Daisies”, which was a hit in the United States and Australia.

 

While Ween is generally categorized as an alternative rock band, they are known for their highly eclectic catalog of songs inspired by funk, soul, country, gospel, prog, R&B, heavy metal, punk rock, and more. Despite never receiving much mainstream recognition, Ween developed a large, devoted cult following.

 

Wikipedia also says: A Tear for Eddie was dedicated to the funk/psychedelic guitar pioneer Eddie Hazel, who died December 23, 1992.
