CYHRA/RED WOLF guitarist EUGE VALOVIRTA has released a touching song and video ‘A Song For An Absent Friend’, watch below.
“It’s for Alexi, but also for all the late friends. And to my Grandpa, who passed away some time ago.
The song actually got its start after my Grandpa’s passing and I came back to it now ‘cos I felt that I had to “play my feelings out” somehow. So I finished the song and then filmed myself playing the lead guitar and just played from my heart.
I can’t really explain it but playing guitar always makes me feel better no matter what is going on.
Alexi & I weren’t the closest friends but every time we met we always had such a great time. Whether it was playing on each of other’s albums, doing guitar clinics or playing occasional live shows or just hanging out. He was one the most caring, humble and nicest guys I’ve ever met and it feels so unfair that he isn’t with us anymore.”
