No matter what you think of Pearl Jam, Eddie Vedder can sing. And he also happens to be one hell of a performer. He’s also an avid fan of music in general. Pearl Jam sets are known just as much for their wide variety of covers as much as anything else. It’s little wonder that he’s performed with dozens of bands and artists. So he’s a few of my favorite Eddie Vedder guest appearances:
Eddie Vedder, Bruce Springsteen & The E-Street Band: No Surrender (2004)
R.E.M. & Eddie Vedder: Man on the Moon (2007 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Introduction)
Pete Townshend & Eddie Vedder – Heart to Hang Onto (Letterman 1999). Vedder has played numerous times with The Who and Townshend, but this has always been one of my favorites since I watched it when it aired.
My Morning Jacket & Eddie Vedder: It Makes No Difference (2006? Maybe?)
U2 & Eddie Vedder: Old Man River (2oo5)
Kings of Leon & Eddie Vedder – Slow Night, So Long (2007). Best version of this song ever. Also, if you only know Kings of Leon by way of “Sex on Fire” and “Use Somebody” they tear it up on this one.)
