In August, Eddie's son Wolfgang admitted the death of his father - who was ranked number eight in Rolling Stone magazine's list of 100 greatest guitarists - "still didn't feel real".
He wrote on Instagram: "I’ve had so many dreams lately where Pop and I are just doing normal things and then I realize it’s a dream, stop whatever I’m doing and hug him for as long as I can until I wake up.
"I miss the f*** out of him. I can’t believe he’s not here anymore. Still doesn’t feel real. I’m doing my best, Pop (sic)."
Wolfgang previously insisted it was important for him to "be his own person" on his debut album 'Mammoth WVH', and admitted he finds songwriting "really therapeutic".
He said: "It's as personal as can be. Songwriting is a really therapeutic thing for me, so I was working out a lot of stuff with these songs.
"Most of my lyrics are written at something or someone. It's almost like an amalgamation of ... You know how you always win arguments in the shower? It's like that.
"It's like anybody who's ever done me wrong or used me, or lied to me, amalgamate into this one being that I write lyrics at."
