Let's get two things clear: I love Eddie Vedder, and I love The Waiting by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. Last month, the gods smiled upon us, giving Pearl Jam a day off during their UK tour, while conveniently placing Tom Petty in the same town.
In the past, Pearl Jam, specifically Eddie, has cover Tom's classic, I Won't Back Down. You can find some great early versions, around the time of the Ticketmaster trial, "Sponsored By No One" tour. But, with the future so bright for both bands, Eddie decided to jump on stage for one of my favorite songs.
