The Rolling Stones & Eddie Vedder perform “Wild Horses.”

On  the night of September 28th 2005, at PNC Stadium in the great city of Pittsburgh PA, The Rolling Stones Mick Jagger and Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder performed a vocal duet on the Rollings Stones classic, “Wild Horses.”  After Pearl Jam had opened the concert, the Stones brought the Pearl Jam frontman back to perform to a crazed sold out crowd. The Rolling Stones were on tour in 2005 in support of the last Stones album,”A Bigger Bang.” The Rolling Stones first released the song “Wild Horses,” on their 1971 album Sticky Fingers. The song “Wild Horses,” originally hit number 28 on the Billboard’s hot 100 radio charts. The original recording featured Mick Jagger on vocals, Keith Richards on lead guitar, twelve string acoustic guitar and backing vocals, Mick Taylor on acoustic guitar, Bill Wyman on bass guitar and Charlie Watts on drums.

The Rolling Stones 2005 featured Pearl Jam as the opening act for a few select dates. The crowds for the Pearl Jam Rolling Stones shows were a mix of Rolling Stone fans and Pearl Jam fans. As it was the year 2005, many of the twenty and thirty years olds in the audiences had grown up to the music of Pearl Jam. In the early nineteen nineties there was no other band besides Nirvana that was bigger than Pearl Jam in the rock roll scene of that time period.

The Rolling Stones who to this day are probably the longest remaining rock band still together in some sort of fashion have continued to tour and record over an astonishing period of more than 50 years. One would assume that the average age of the Rolling Stone fan in the year 2019 is 65. FIfteen years ago when the Stones and Pearl Jam performed those shows you had audiences half filled with 55 years old’s and 25 to 35 years old’s. Seeing the Rolling Stones & Eddie Vedder perform the song “Wild Horses,” was the perfect union of two generations of rock fans that simply both understood the meaning and quality of good rock and roll.
