FLASHBACK: A Rare Interview with Eddie Vedder Download

Ahead of MMR’s Saturday Night Concert Series kickoff with Pearl Jam, we flash back to a chat with Eddie Vedder backstage at the Wells Fargo Center on October 22nd, 2013. Eddie doesn’t do interviews very often, so Pierre Robert, Nick McIlwain and Matt Cord were honored to spend a few minutes with him before the gig.

This interview was years in the making – and Eddie was every bit as cool as we hoped he’d be. Later that night, he uttered the now-legendary shout out: “To Nick…”

In this chat, they discussed Pearl Jam’s relationship with Philadelphia and their run of 2009 shows that closed out the Spectrum (which we’ll feature on air this Saturday night at 7pm!). Eddie reflects on the band’s impact, the connection with their fans, and his unlikely way to unwind: axe throwing. Click the button at the top of this page to stream!
