    I was at one of those shows when he did that! It totally freaked out the stage guys….. I could see the fear in their eyes. It really did go far beyond what even the fans wanted…… It’s amazing he never got hurt.

    Eddie Vedder is just too cool! He is a true poet. You just have to work to figure out the lyrics.

  • Erin

    I was at Lollapalooza 92′ and watched Eddie climb a rope ladder up about 40 feet in the air. He was hanging on by one arm singing “Once”…pretty freaking amazing! Pearl Jam is the greatest band of my generation!

    it’s fun to climb…

    I have not climbed again for 20 years

    I was fortunate to see them twice. Once in Las Cruces New Mexico and here in Dallas Texas several several years ago Dennis Rodman showed up to that one and lifted Eddie V. up on his shoulders and was walking around on stage with him sight too see. They are a great group who put out excellent music that I think plenty of people can relate to. Keep Rockin P.J. as I look in my Rear View Mirror…
