Just indulge me for one sec – a few more Vedder items (and some music)

Okay, while every one is busy talking about that other new famous baby and the pics on the internet (even my SISTER sent me the links this morning; it’s like the Baby Jesus all over again, except there were no cameras then) — here’s one I’ll bet you missed altogether.

Yep, that’s Ed Vedder throwing out the first pitch at a recent Cubs game with daughter Olivia Vedder, 2. Pretty dang cute, I must say. Okay, wait, what is this, Hello! Magazine? Here’s some music. Apologies:

June 3, 2006 PJ Show
Continental Arena, East Rutherford, New Jersey

No Surrender (Springsteen cover) – Ed Vedder, solo, pre-show
This is quickly becoming one of my favorite covers EVER that they do.

It Makes No Difference – My Morning Jacket & Ed Vedder
Ed then stays out for the first song of the MMJ set. Nice.

I should have pointed this out before, but didja know that Pearl Jam is selling all of the shows from their current tour on their website, practically immediately following the actual performance? Replacing the discs and discs and discs for sale of tours past, now you just download it and it’s that simple. Very cool & egalitarian, and forward-thinking of them in terms of harnessing the power of the internet to reach the fans.

One other neat feature of their site is that they log every single song Pearl Jam has done/performed/recorded in a searchable database. And you thought I just KNEW that the last time they played Leash was 4/11/94.

  • Wow. Three great tastes (The Band, MMJ, Vedder) that taste great together. Really pretty cover. Many thanks.

  • Ok, this is quickly becoming my favourite blog. Great taste, as mentioned. I think I’ve found an equal for my PJ passion.

    Great Springsteen stuff, as well.

    Actually, great everything! Thanks for all your sharing.

  • Pearl Jam always does the most inspired covers, and this is one of my favorite tunes from The Boss.

    You do pretty good work here, thanks and keep it up!

  • I was there and, let me tell you, I get goosebumps just remembering it….to here Ed cover Bruce in New Jersey, just awesome! There’s a shaky video of “No Surrender” up at YouTube, which I have stuck in my fanview of both NJ shows on BillyBlog (http://oxypoet.blogspot.com)

  • I love your blog! I’m a huge Pearl Jam fan, and the photo of Eddie holding his child almost made me squeal like a little girl. Thanks!

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."

"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
