Thank You

As a 52 year old, husband of 21 years, father of an 18 year old son, scars, triumphs, insecurities, strengths, and many memories involving concert experiences with the band Pearl Jam- the simplicity, agenda free honesty of this personal share some how closes the gap between icon and human. Clearly we are closer by virtue of our common traits than we are different defined by who is on stage or who is watching the stage. Thank you for sharing- the words within this share is likely a part of what makes the fans appreciate the experience you’ve created- something rooted in flawed perfection- similar to all of us- one world.

More Please

I have always heard Pearl Jam songs but didn’t really listen to them until recently. And I didn’t really appreciate or understand how insanely talented Eddie Vedder is until now. Thank you Eddie for sharing your incredible talent with the world, thank you for being authentic, and thank you for still sharing your celestial voice with the world.

As Expected

As far as the history, nothing new that Pearl Jam fans don’t already know, but definitely some new details and perspective on the stories Ed tells.

Some great new arrangements on PJ classics sung by Vedder are on this as well (especially Better Man)

Light hearted, scattered and his guard is down…which makes for great ramblings of takes and tales that, for me, has made Pearl Jam one of the most important bands of my time.

The voice of a generation

Words + Music continues to impress me with the artists chosen and the amazing stories they've shared. This is no exception. For such a short piece, Vedder showed amazing focused insight and openness. Highly recommended for fans of him or this series.

Hearing stories straight from EV’s mouth and the acoustic songs in between stories…So inspiring, insightful, and amazing. A must listen!

Rocket fuel can be fatal!

I'm happy to hear these lyrics in this format, especially Better Man. All are familiar of course, but to hear the chorus, "I want to be a better woman, but you need to be a better man" is new, exciting and refreshing all at once! TU Eddie. I hear a woman's true feelings in that particular (and new to me) lyric/chorus.

Thanks to Eddie Vetter for sharing

It felt good to hear, in Eddie's own words and voice a few glimpses into his life. Though there was understandably not a lot of intimate personal sharing (the world eats enough of the famous), I thought it brave that he spoke of the Roskilde concert, and the Ticketmaster- power- monger s---ts, and sent him another thousand blessings for taking on such a noble cause, even when the outcome was so disappointing. Did everyone thank them for that? I hope so.

I am mine

Of course it is wonderful, it’s Eddie and he is so real. As an 80’s rock girl I love the 90’s grunge bands and Eddie brings it all home with his realness and ability to stay close to the feminine point of view in his lyrics and song. Total heart!
