Eddie Vedder

Along with Kurt Cobain, Eddie Vedder reluctantly became a celebrity and an alt-rock spokesman when his band, Pearl Jam, hit the big time in the early '90s. But things didn't come easy for Vedder. With a tumultuous home life as a youngster, he turned to surfing and rock music as a teenager -- most notably such classic rockers as the Who, Neil Young, and the Doors -- as well as such punk bands as the Clash and Minor Threat. His residence alternated between Chicago and San Diego, as he formed his first real band in his twenties, Bad Radio. With the band not breaking out of local status, Vedder befriended ex-Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Jack Irons, who in turn gave Eddie a demo tape some of his friends had given him (in hopes of finding a singer). Vedder quickly put lyrics and vocals to the tape, and mailed it back to Seattle (it turned out the band consisted of ex-members of the Seattle-based Mother Love Bone, guitarist Stone Gossard and bassist Jeff Ament).

Gossard and Ament were floored with the results, immediately inviting Vedder up to Seattle, where he soon landed the gig. Shortly after lead guitarist Mike McCready joined the band (plus a revolving door of assorted drummers), the band signed with Epic Records. Originally called Mookie Blaylock, the group changed its name to Pearl Jam, and their debut, Ten, followed in the fall of 1991. With the Seattle scene (Nirvana, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, et al.) exploding on the charts, airwaves, and media, Pearl Jam picked the perfect time to issue their debut, which eventually outsold all other Seattle bands, and made Pearl Jam one of the biggest groups of the '90s (other hit albums followed: Vs., Vitalogy, No Code, Yield, and Binaural).

Vedder also became involved in numerous politically charged causes: his band took Ticketmaster to court over high ticket prices, he supported presidential candidate Ralph Nader and environmental causes, and was pro-choice. He also made special appearances at numerous concerts of bands he admirers (Bob Dylan's 50th B-day bash at Madison Square Garden, the Tibetan Freedom Concert, Who/Pete Townshend gigs, etc.), and played drums at live shows with the band Hovercraft (his wife's band). With his hard-hitting and often confessional lyrical style and Jim Morrison-esque baritone, Vedder also became one of the most copied lead singers in all of rock. Despite all the accolades, it wasn't until 2007 that Vedder released his first solo project, Into the Wild, the soundtrack to the Sean Penn film of the same time.

Following Pearl Jam's 2009 album Backspacer and its accompanying tour, Eddie Vedder released his first non-soundtrack album, 2011's Ukulele Songs, which included a mixture of covers and originals, with Vedder singing and accompanying himself on ukulele. ~ Greg Prato, Rovi

amazing artist... thank you Eddie for all you do !
Eddie ain't no pretender.
Vedder~ The Epitomy of a true artist,, one that injects a tiny piece of his soul in every piece of music he writes and performs.
One of my favorite songs by Eddie is Just Breathe, the meaning in the words, when you love, you might make mistakes, but forgiveness is the the true key, to truly love is to understand that perfection does not exist, we all hope to find someone who can really look into our hearts, good or bad and still love.

This song is sad! If you saw the movie into the wild, you would know what i mean. R.I.P. Chris( he was what the movie was about
Rolling Stones the best band ever
Tear to cheek. Rock em
Didn't read anything about his stint with Stone in Temple of the Dog... hunger strike was an anthem for me...had that playing in my house truck when my 1st son was born on my 33rd Birthday.... .

Lol "of the same time" it says. Guy must have written this using the iPhone
has a awesome deep voice
Eddie is almost as good a singer as Richard Thompson or Richard Sinclair. Half the talent of Robert Wyatt though...but still a cut above most.
i have seen eddie live 6 times in the last 2 years. he is probably my biggest inspiration ever. he is the reason i play music everyday

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes when done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the big letters. This is so scary because it actually works
Eddie mucho bonito hombre I love him...
RAW TALENT

coley.carmic h a e l
I get lost in his beautiful talent. His voice is enchanting and heartfelt. I love him!!
So much passion ...no bullshit
He has the best voice i've ever heard, hands down! He is awesome.
Eddie Vedder brings the perfect combination of heart and talent to music for me. He's just great
rogerblocke
I really like this one
pixiedust64
Not only is Eddie a talented singer/songw r i t e r , he has such a loving heart - his connection to the Bridge School students is why I adore him - he has an amazing heart and soul - and I do believe it shows in his song writing
I love a whole lot of rock bands Led Zep being my favorite of all, but Eddie won my heart and soul...his music, lyrics, voice, his face, legs and soul. I would make him the happiest man alive.
First CD I bought back in 92-93... "Ten"
20 years zips... I'm not one to get hung up on bands, albums so on and so on. music is just so big to limit it by such a measure. Thanks Eddie for shedding a little light on some of those darker days in a past youth i hated to remember but have grown to love through kick a** PJ lyrics and sound.
Hauntingly powerful song. Lyrics and voice become one.
I love Eddie's voice, and his song writing is amazing! Pearl Jam is one of my favorite bands ever!
Follow me and I'll follow back!
From a lil country further downunder than downunder. When Pearl Jam hits our shores for the Big Day Out this Summer it will be Monstrous!
Definitely the second coming.
Loved Eddie playing with the Finns.
barbfortinb

Eddie F'ing Vedder
I have a man crush on Eddie and I am not gay :-)
He's everything
Hes basicly the second commin of elvis. His influence on music is massive and is only going to grow
Eddie Vedder what can I say, the best ever!!!! :-)
Eddie Vedder is, for me, the best musician in every sense. Love his voice, love his songs......a n d love him.
I wish I could find the words to describe this. It just doesn't work like that though. The only words that could work, are , "there's just no describing this"
alongwayfrom h o m e 5 you are a f**king idiot and a disgrace to the human race.
alongwayfrom h o m e 5
Don't read this cause it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day ofyour life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary. Put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will come on the screen in big letters. This is scary cause it really works
