Former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist Josh Klinghoffer paid a musical tribute to Betty White, who died on December 31st at the age of 99. He played a cover of White’s hit series Golden Girls theme song, “You’ve Got A Friend,” and shared it on social media along with a lengthy post.
Klinghoffer wrote in part, “There has been a lot of loss lately, a lot of endings. It’s happening all the time everywhere, but these past few weeks have seen the loss of a few important people in my life. I rarely feel like I have any wisdom to share, but the son of the creator of the show I have included the theme song to said this, and I think it’s just brilliant. He said (something like), ‘We are all experts at being exactly who we were the day before.'”
Klinghoffer is expected to release a new album in 2022.
