Every Monday morning. Music so good… it must be shared.
This week: “Heart to Hang Onto” — Pete Townshend and Eddie Vedder, live on David Letterman
It took me a few months, but I finally saw “Pearl Jam Twenty”, the Cameron Crowe project about the band’s first 20 years. Plenty of great stuff — some of the unseen footage from the early 90s might have been the most compelling part — but there was also a great moment where Eddie Vedder is talking about the first time he met Pete Townshend.
Vedder, he recalls, was paralyzed. This is Pete Townshend. His hero. What do you say? And then, (and I’m paraphrasing here) Townshend spoke.
“I’ve waited so long to meet you,” he said.
