Two of the band's most popular cover versions, "Interstellar Overdrive" by Pink Floyd and "Baba O'Riley" by The Who, were included, while Mike McCready took the second encore's final song, the oft unintelligible "Yellow Ledbetter" into a "Star Bangled [...]
By Matt Arena The 2012 summer festival season has been a great one. Though at times it may have felt more like a Jack White/The Black Keys festival tour, there were some rather pleasant surprises. The inaugural year for Firefly Festival was quite possibly the best of the summer, and the incredibly well organized (and Metallica curated) Orion Music + More Festival both prove that you don’t need to stick to any of the major mainstays to have a great ...
As colaborações em festivais e nos palcos de New Jersey entre o The Gaslight Anthem de Brian Fallon e seu ídolo Bruce Springsteen já são tradicionais,e estão ao alcance de qualquer navegante esperto do YouTube, mas no festival DeLuna, da Flórida, o The Gaslight Anthem recebeu no palco outra de suas influências, e dessa vez, uma influência cuja ação específica no álbum mais recente da banda, Handwritten , foi bem intensa. Eddie Vedder , vocalista do Pearl Jam , foi convidado a se juntar a [...]
Lerner takes on "Spin the Black Circle".
Le preferenze politiche di Eddie Vedder dei Pearl Jam non sono mai state un mistero. Quindi in pochi si stupiranno scoprendo che qualche sera fa, ha cantato per il presidente Obama in occasione di una esclusiva serata di gala per una raccolta fondi. La particolarità è che non solo è stato 'costretto' a indossare un abito adatto all'occasione ("Non credo di aver mai suonato così tante canzoni in smoking", ha scherzato), ma ha raccontato dei suoi esordi come musicista e dei sacrifici fatti per potersi permettere la strumentazione. Vedder infatti decise [...]
Avrà anche deluso molti Barack Obama (anche noi per molti aspetti vedi l'incapacità di riformare i pescecani di Wall Street ) ma comunque l'idea che dopo l'incubo Bush i Repubblicani possano tornare alla Casa Bianca inquieta molti anche fra i musicisti americani. Fra questi anche Eddie Vedder dei Peal Jam che ha raccolto 1.7 milioni di dollari in favore della campagna per rieleggere Barack Obama. Vedder si è esibito in uno show durante il quale ha proposto due brani dei [...]
As the little monsters finally begin to leave the house again, let's take a moment to look at the songs about that wonderful place that keeps them out of our hair; school. It happens every year; that magical time when the kids head back to school. We all dreaded September as children. [...]
The Gaslight Anthem have been influenced quite a bit by fellow Jerseyan Bruce Springsteen , from the style of music they play to where they play it at . Now, they're even taking The Boss' lead when it comes to surprise guests. Just two weeks after Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder appeared during Springsteen and co.'s shows at Wrigley Field, he was on stage with The Gaslight Anthem at Pensacola Beach, FL's DeLuna Fest. Together, they performed Pearl Jam's "State of Love and Trust", and you can catch the fan footage below.
Well here's an interesting combination. Pearl Jam 's Jeff Ament has teamed up with musician Joseph Arthur to form a new project they've called RNDM (pronounced random). Their debut album, cleverly titled Acts , will hit stores on October 30th. Check out the video for "Modern Times" here: RNDM play Lee's Palace in Toronto on November 11th.

While many consider Jay-Z the GOAT when it comes to hip-hop, that doesn't normally bring his leanings outside of the rap realm into play. In a genre where "crossing over" almost requires some kind of non-hip hop movements, Hov is an example of taking some risks and incorporating different sounds into the chamber. These moves have helped accentuate the term "artist" as opposed to plain old rapper. Taking his recent live performances with Pearl Jam and Coldplay as inspiration, we figured we should take a look at some of Jay's most surprising moments outside [...]
THIS WEEK'S BEST BET: Circa Survive w/ Touché Amoré, Balance and Composure Friday, September 21 Center Stage - 1374 West Peachtree Street in Atlanta 30309 Admission $19 / Purchase Tickets On their fourth full length, Violent Waves , Philadelphia's Circa Survive continue to push the boundaries of their spacey prog-punk experimentation, tastefully blending ethereal melodies with soaring riffs and pseudo-psychedelic flourishes. It's likely the band's most ambitious work; everything sounds big and bold and the group displays a ready willingness [...]

Once again , Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band brought out Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam and Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello at various points during the second and final night of the group's visit to Wrigley Field in Chicago. By the time the night was over, The Boss and his band had treated those who attended both nights to 14 songs which weren't played on Friday. [Photo via @backstreetsmag ] Morello reprised his now familiar role as E Street [...]
By now, you should've seen the mash-up performance from last weekend's Made In America festival where co-headliners Pearl Jam were joined on stage by Jay-Z, which lead to a live version of Jay's "99 Problems" during their performance of "W.M.A." (which is taken from their 1993 album Vs.) . Seems to be a favorite past time of Jay's, seeing as he's done performances with Phish and Linkin Park before. Bassist Jeff Ament recently spoke to Spin about how this concept came about between Hov and Pearl Jam, and it doesn't sound like it was as [...]

photos by Dana (distortion) Yavin Run DMC / Pearl Jam / Drake at Made in America Fest 9/3/2012 Everything about their performance was classic Run DMC - from the occasional B-Boy stance right down to Run's Adidas track suit. Run, at times, seemed stunned and overwhelmed by the crowd's response commenting "All these people know the words!" and getting so excited that his voice would turn into a rocker's scream. DMC, wearing an Alice [...]
