Eddie Vedder Follows Ringo’s Concept With His Own All Star Band

Eddie Vedder All Star Band

Look out Ringo, Eddie Vedder has stolen your idea. Rock fans jaws will drop when they hear about the band that Eddie Vedder has formed to take on the road in support of his new album Earthing. The drum chair is always so important in a rock and roll band and Eddie Vedder has hired one of the best in the Red Hot Chili Peppers Chad Smith. The legendary Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer is no stranger to playing in super groups as he also manned the drum seat in Chickenfoot which featured Sammy Hagar, Michael Anthony, and the sensational Joe Satriani. Of course, in concert all eyes are always on the guitarist and it looks like Eddie Vedder employed another legend in Chad Smith’s Red Hot Chili Peppers ex-bandmate guitarist extraordinaire Josh Klinghoffer. Also in the band is Andrew Watt who is a well known producer who has produced music of artists from Ozzy Osbourne to Elton John, to Camila Cabello and so many more as well as Eddie Vedder’s Earthling album. Guitarist Glen Hansard and bassist Chris Chaney of The Living End round out the rest of this extraordinary band backing up the lead vocalist of Pearl Jam and rock legend Eddie Vedder. 

The Earthling Tour began at the beginning of the month as so far there have only been a series of shows scheduled for the rest of February. Unfortunately a few of them had to be postponed because covid had hit the band. Nonetheless, the boys have recovered and resumed the tour last night on Monday Feb 22  in Seattle, Washington at the  Benaroya Hall. And what a show it was. Eddie Vedder and his band not only played tracks from his new Earthling album, they also played many Pearl Jam cuts like “Dirty Frank,” “Wishlist,”  “Porch,” and  “Corduroy,”

It wasn’t just Pearl Jam cuts that Eddie surprised the audience with. Vedder dug deep in to the classic rock canyon of music and played cover versions of songs from The Who, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, The Sex Pistols, The Pretenders and even a Beatle in the music of George Harrison with hi classic song “Isn’t It A Pity.”

While the band was already filled with all stars, Eddie Vedder brought out another legendary musician in Guns’ N’ Roses Duff McKagan to play on a smoking version of the Pretenders classic song entitled “Precious.” A song that opened the debut Pretenders album and we have always believed was their best cut.

So far, the only shows that have been announced are the February shows. However with a band like this, and an album that is so good, we hope that Eddie and the band schedule more shows for the spring. We will keep our readers updated the moment we hear of any.
