Early life

Vedder was born Edward Louis Severson in the Chicago suburb of Evanston, Illinois, the son of Karen Lee Vedder and Edward Louis Severson, Jr.[3] His father was a lounge musician.[4] His parents divorced in 1965, when Vedder was one year old. His mother soon remarried a man named Peter Mueller, an attorney, and Vedder was raised believing that Mueller was his biological father. His adopted name became Edward Mueller.[5] While living in Evanston, Vedder's family fostered seven younger children in a group home.[6]
.In the mid-1970s, the family, including Vedder's three younger half-brothers, moved to San Diego County, California.^ What was the name of Eddie Vedder's band in San Diego?
  • Amazon.com: Pearl Jam: Albums, Songs, Bios, Photos 6 January 2010 7:46 UTC www.amazon.com [Source type: General]

It was at this point that Vedder, who had received a guitar from his mother on his twelfth birthday, began turning to music as a source of comfort. He particularly found solace in The Who's 1973 album, Quadrophenia.[7] He said, "When I was around 15 or 16...I felt all alone...I was all alone—except for music."[8] His mother and Mueller divorced when Vedder was in his late teens. .His mother and brothers moved back to the Chicago area, but Vedder remained with his stepfather in California so he would not have to change high schools.^ No Code was a change of sound for the band, as they moved towards more ballads and, at times, a more stripped back feeling.
  • Amazon.com: Pearl Jam: Albums, Songs, Bios, Photos 6 January 2010 7:46 UTC www.amazon.com [Source type: General]

.It was not until after the divorce that Vedder learned the truth about his parentage, that Mueller was really his stepfather.^ The more I learn about Jeremy the more I realize just how tragic this really was.
  • Pearl Jam� Jeremy 28 January 2010 0:38 UTC www.sshep.com [Source type: General]

Vedder had met his biological father briefly as a child, but had believed that Severson was merely an old friend of his parents. By the time Vedder learned the truth, Severson had died of multiple sclerosis. .By his senior year at San Dieguito High School, Vedder was on his own, living in an apartment and supporting himself with a nightly job at a drug store in Encinitas.^ I knew a kid in high school who killed himself by jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, CA. "They" found his backpack but obviously never found the body.

Temple of the Dog

.After leaving Bad Radio, Vedder was without a band, and throughout the rest of 1990 he worked part-time as a night attendant at a local gas station.^ The band was taking part in the Roskilde summer rock festival and reportedly asked the crowd to move back from the stage several times.

[15] Later in 1990, Irons gave him a demo tape from a band in Seattle, Washington that was looking for a singer. He listened to the tape shortly before going surfing, where lyrics came to him.[16] Vedder wrote lyrics for three of the songs in what he later described as a "mini-opera" entitled Mamasan. .The songs tell the story of a young man who, like Vedder, learns that he had been lied to about his paternity and that his real father is dead ("Alive").^ I had recently read that the song "Jeremy" was about a real-life event.

The song "Hunger Strike" became a duet between Cornell and Vedder. Cornell was having trouble with the vocals at practice, when Vedder stepped in. .Cornell later said "he sang half of that song not even knowing that I'd wanted the part to be there and he sang it exactly the way I was thinking about doing it, just instinctively."^ I remember at the end of the last record, he said, 'Y'know, this was really a lot of work for me, and next time, it would be great if I didn't have to work so hard on the arrangements, and if people came in with more complete ideas, and even more complete songs, that would really help me out a lot,' and I think everybody took that to heart."

^ ABOUT THE PEARL JAM ALBUM 10 ( Eddie Vedder comments in bold) .
  • Pearl Jam� Jeremy 28 January 2010 0:38 UTC www.sshep.com [Source type: General]

His lyrics have often invoked the use of storytelling and have included themes of freedom, individualism, and sympathy for troubled individuals.[65] .Other recurring themes include the use of water metaphors,[66] as well as the idea of leaving everything behind to start again (featured in such songs as "Rearviewmirror" (from Vs.), "MFC" (from Yield), "Evacuation" (from Binaural), and "Gone" (from Pearl Jam)).^ Pearl Jam started touring - kicking off in Australia.

^ Pearl Jam were nominated for 2 Grammy Awards for Best Rock Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group (" Daughter ") and Best Rock Album ( Vs.

^ Pearl Jam found their work used in a Washington court room.

.Although best known as a vocalist, Vedder also plays guitar on many Pearl Jam songs, beginning with the Vs. songs "Rearviewmirror" and "Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town". When the band started, Gossard and McCready were clearly designated as rhythm and lead guitarists, respectively.^ Pearl Jam's guitarist, Mike McCready reportedly broke his collarbone playing baseball.

^ McCready was not able to play with the band for about 6 weeks.

^ Pearl Jam has outlasted many of its contemporaries from the alternative rock breakthrough of the early 1990s, and is considered one of the most influential bands of the decade.
  • Pearl Jam Lyrics 6 January 2010 7:46 UTC www.lyrics.com [Source type: General]

The dynamic began to change when Vedder started to play more rhythm guitar during the Vitalogy era. .McCready said in 2006, "Even though there are three guitars, I think there's maybe more room now.^ McCready said "I think the thought crossed all of our minds, but it wouldn't have been a good way to end it all."

Stone will pull back and play a two-note line and Ed will do a power chord thing, and I fit into all that."[67] Vedder's guitar playing helped the band's sound progress toward a more stripped-down style; the songs "Rearviewmirror" and "Corduroy" (from Vitalogy) feature Vedder's raw, punk-influenced guitar playing. .As he had more influence on the band's sound, Vedder sought to make the band's musical output less catchy.^ "Two Weeks" sounds like a young, doped-up Morrissey tripping on Quaaludes with a band that makes elevator music versions of late-era Beatles songs.

^ After Wood overdosed on heroin, and Mother Love Bone as a band was no more, Gossard brought in McCready and Krusen, and eventually Vedder - and Pearl Jam was formed.

^ I despise bands that try for that "We're so friggin' indie" sound, despite being completely owned by Universal Music, the biggest major label in the business.

Vedder participated in stage diving as well as crowd surfing. .Looking back at this time, Vedder said, "It's hard for us to watch early performances, even though that's when people think we were on fire and young.^ I remember at the end of the last record, he said, 'Y'know, this was really a lot of work for me, and next time, it would be great if I didn't have to work so hard on the arrangements, and if people came in with more complete ideas, and even more complete songs, that would really help me out a lot,' and I think everybody took that to heart."

^ I think even avoiding two-year long tours helps us.

^ Note from SS : At times life will get really rough people, even unbearable, and you just have to realize it is temporary, it too shall pass.

And I find it kind of hard to watch those early performances because it's so just fucking, semi-testosterone-fueled or whatever. But it didn't come from jock mentality. It came from just being let out of the gates."[68]
Vedder's perspective on performing changed during the Vs. era, explaining that "a year later the meaning of a concert to me became, like, 'Wow, what if there was silence between the songs?' Then if I did say anything, then maybe the crowd could hear it."[33] He also commented in regard to getting a crowd reaction that "you should be able to do it just with chord changes and the way you deliver a song."[69] .Even though he has ceased participating in more extreme concert activities, Vedder's connection with the audience has continued to play an important part in the band's concerts.^ Vedder has always believed that the video destroyed his vision of the song and the band refused to play it at the MTV Awards ceremony.

.He stated, "I look around the audience, and there's so many faces, and I've looked into the eyes of at least the ones I could see—there's at least 1,000 faces—and I've communicated directly to them and seen where they're coming from...One thing I don't feel is separation from the crowd.^ They were re-doing the entrance with a modern look, however this is how it has looked since being built and how it looked when Jeremy attended Richardson High School.
