A month ago, Eckstein was awarded a special award by the ACUM board "for his many contributions to Israeli art and culture." Eckstein could not attend the ceremony because of his medical condition. Instead, his daughters Noga and Michal received the award on his behalf. Would say in his characteristic modesty - thank you.

So let's say thank you to him for the huge contribution to music, and to the life of rock 'n' roll, "they said.



In 2018, Eckstein was interviewed by Maariv and told about his kidney disease: "I am fighting for my life, and the only thing I wish for myself is to live a little longer. Today, only 7% of my kidneys are functioning, and the percentages are declining."

A year earlier, his brother Eran Zeira published a public call for a kidney donor.

"I live on the Ichilov-Holon line," he said.

"Three days a week I have dialysis treatments at the hospital, each lasting several hours. There I have time to log on to Facebook and keep up to date on everything happening on social media. The rest of the days I rest at home. I am physically and mentally exhausted, and I do not have much strength and desire to walk around the city. I feel good at home, on the couch and in front of the TV. "
