Had a chance to see Pearl Jam live recently, and I took it!
I’ve been fan since the 90s when my brother used to play their early CDs (and before that, their tapes!) without pause, filling the house with their distinctive grunge sound and Eddie Vedder’s haunting vocals.
He’s seen them a bunch of times, but this is a first for me. And it was amazing! A great set (one of many at this year’s Big Day Out, an Australian summer music festival that plays in most of the major cities) and a great show. You can usually tell when a group aren’t faking it – they’re real.
And that’s Pearl Jam.
