Eddie Vedder, the singer and frontman of band Pearl Jam, is looking for the woman who gave him a lift on her brother's bike to his hotel in Amsterdam in 1992. He often thinks back to that moment. "Is the woman who gave me a lift to my hotel in 1992 maybe here tonight?" Vedder asked during the first, sold out, show of his solo European tour in Afas Live Amsterdam on Sunday, AD reports.
After asking this question, Vedder looked expectantly out at the crowd, but all remained silent.
Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder paid tribute to his recently deceased friend Chris Cornell during a solo show in Amsterdam on Saturday. Cornell, best known as frontman for band Soundgarden, hanged himself in a hotel room in Detroit on Wednesday, NY Daily News reports.
While Vedder didn't mention Cornell by name, it was clear that the 52-year-old grunge singer was on his mind.
