The Red Hot Chili Peppers recently released a video in tribute to the band members' late friend Brendan Mullen, called "Brendan's Death Song." Mullen, who died in 2009, was a longtime friend of the band.
In the Mark Klasfeld-directed video, which was taped in New Orleans in one day, Anthony Kiedis and company take part in a funeral for their friend. During the video, the band and a crowd of other people parade through the city. The song starts out hushed but slowly changes to a loud anthem.
Mullen was a club owner and booker in the Los Angeles music scene, according to Rolling Stone.
One of the most defining moments for the Peppers was when Mullen was given the band's demo tape in the early 1980s, and he gave them a spot to open up for Bad Brains. From then on, Mullen and the band were friends.
