Rockers are getting into the giving spirit and generously donating their time to victims of October's devastating Superstorm Sandy. Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder and Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, as well as Bon Jovi, have been added to the lineup for the 12-12-12 concert, which will benefit the Robin Hood Relief Fund's efforts for victims of Hurricane Sandy.
Pearl Jam vocalist Eddie Vedder performed a short set for a Barack Obama fundraiser last night (Sept. 20) in Tampa Bay, Fla.
