Eddie Vedder, various live sessions, and 1998 demos
What can I say about Eddie...I don't know really as it's been a long day, I've started drinking, and my brain isn't exactly up to the task. I once had a couple of lads over for what we might aswell call an audition many moons ago, it went ok and they were good lads, but it wasn't meant to be...anyway, I had to go into town afterwards so they gave me a lift in and on the stereo was Pearl Jams Jeremy. So, I sat in the back giving it the whole "Ooh woah oh oh..." bit at the end, and they in turn give it the "Whoa, damn dude, do that again!" Whatever did happen to my voice...ah yes, too much smoking that's right.
So we have for you today, a tape bought off Eds neighbour, some soundboard from the world famous Carnegie Hall (sweet cover!), an impromptu couple of songs before a Sleater Kinney show (one with vocalist Janet Weiss), a mixing desk feed plus soundcheck featuring students from the Paul Green School Of Rock Music, and finally another soundboard recording, this time with Mike McCready along for the ride and a special couple of guests for one track, which I'll let you find out for yourself...I will say the vocalist and bassist of a very big group though. :-P
