Red Eye The Song (VIDEO)

It originally aired Wednesday April 7th, 2010 but was preempted by Fox News Channel’s coverage of the West Virginia mining disaster. So to satisfy their tens of fans, Red Eye re-aired the segment the following day, April 8th.

What did they re-air?

Well, everyone’s favorite 3am gabfest, Red Eye, welcomed former Lynyrd Skynyrd guitarist Mike Estes who has written, performed, and recorded “The Red Eye Song.”

According to Red Eye host Greg Gutfeld the song is from 1977 but Land of Punt believes that announcement was in error.

The studio version of “The Red Eye Song” was played coming out of the break and then Estes treated Red Eye viewers to an unplugged version.

The long-hair Estes, who sounds like a character from The Simpsons, claims to be a big fan of Red Eye and said he watches it almost all night.

Bill Shulz asked if TV’s Andy Levy was last because Estes liked him least or because “Andy” easy to rhyme.

Estes said TV’s Andy Levy was last because his first name was easier to rhyme with. However, when pressed, he did admit to disliking TV’s Andy Levy.

The delightful and effervescent Estes performed with Lynyrd Skynyrd in the mid-1990’s and is now the lead singer and guitarist for the southern rock band Skinny Molly (previously seen on Huckabee). At Gutfeld’s request, Estes played a little bit of the solo from “Freebird.”
