Video: Red Hot Chili Peppers – Brendan’s Death Song

Today saw the Red Hot Chili Peppers premiere a new video for “Brendan’s Death Song”, the fourth single from 2011’s I’m With You.  The song is an ode to former club promoter Brendan Mullen, an influential player in the band’s success during the mid-80s, who died suddenly of a stroke in 2009 while working on Red Hot Chili Peppers: An Oral/Visual History.  For my money the song, along with “Look Around”, is one of the best the band has written since the Californication days, and the video ain’t to shabby either.  The video, directed by Marc Klasfeld, features the Keidis, Flea, Smith, and Klinghoffer parading through the streets of New Orleans, honoring the life of their lost friend.  Check it out, courtesy of Rolling Stone.
