Pearl Jam concerts are an event for most fans, but one fan in particular got a night he'll never forget during a show in Spokane, Wash. This past Saturday (Nov. 30), Eddie Vedder noticed a fan in the audience holding up a sign saying that he would let the band shave his dreadlocks if they played his request.
Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder is certainly outspoken with his personal ideology, and in a new video interview, the legendary frontman addressed the issue of guns. In a display of his passion for the subject, Vedder went as far as to say he almost wishes "bad things" upon gun owners who make the pro-gun argument that "it's fun."
In the early parts of Pearl Jam's career, it appeared there was still a place for rock to coexist in the pop music universe, but in recent years the divide between pop and rock has grown greater. Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder tells Rolling Stone he's not exactly the biggest fan of today's pop music and what it provides the listener.
Tackling one of Eddie Van Halen's most popular guitar solo at the school talent show definitely takes guts, but this 8th grader was up for the challenge. While things started off a little rocky in the beginning with what appears to be the whammy bar falling off of his guitar and on to the floor, the show must go on. The young guitar ace quickly recovers and jumps right into the intense solo.
Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder is an avid baseball fan and is usually up for meeting up with players who make their living playing the game. Recently that led Vedder to hanging out with members of the Minnesota Twins baseball team and pitcher Jared Burton now has an experience he'll never forget.
While we wait on new Pearl Jam music, frontman Eddie Vedder has found another creative outlet through the big screen. The vocalist, who has contributed music both as a solo artist and with his band to a number of films, is reportedly working on a song for the upcoming Christian Bale film 'Out of the Furnace.'
Eddie Vedder, perhaps as much as any musician, used his celebrity to rally the efforts to get the West Memphis Three a new trial. So it should come as no surprise that he's contributing music to the 'West of Memphis' documentary about the now free former death row inmates Damien Echols, Jessie Misskelley Jr. and Jason Baldwin. Vedder, who lent his song 'Satellite' for the soundtrack, spoke about the track in an exclusive video at Diffuser.fm.
