Vedder and Pearl Jam in the Hall of Fame

In just a couple of days, Eddie Vedder will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Not as a solo artist, but as a member of the Pearl Jam, along with the rest of the band.

This year there were 19 nominees.

Besides Pearl Jam, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will also embrace Electric Light Orchestra, Journey and Yes into its arms.

The ceremony will take place in three days, that is on April 7 in Brooklyn, New York.

So, Eddie Vedder started as a security guard 30 years ago, and now ended up in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Good job.

Pearl Jam has been among the most popular grunge bands ever, side by side with Nirvana, Soundgarden and Alice In Chains. There’s a good reason for that.

On their first album Ten issues of suicide, depression, murder, and malfunctioning families were raised. Those were some serious lyrics and music.

The other two albums, Vs and Vitalogy, achieved great commercial successes. Critics were quite impressed too.

We can not imagine the 90’s without Pearl Jam, really.

After the third album their popularity started to fade, mostly because they were refusing to make videos. But hey, they had already made a huge impact in the world of music for which we still love them. Which still brings us joy.

Eddie Vedder has worked with some other famous artists and begot his own solo career.

In April 2008 he started his first solo tour in Vancouver. He wanted to promote his first solo album which had been released a year before as a soundtrack for the movie Into the Wild.

The folk sound is recognisable on this album.

The same year saw him with a Golden Globe Award for the song Guaranteed.

In 2011, the second solo album, Ukulele Songs, was released.

To wrap it up. Vedder’s future place in a Rock and Roll hall of Fame is well deserved.

Congratulations, Eddie.
