Bradley Cooper Reveals Eddie Vedder’s Surprising Influence on ‘A Star is Born’

Bradley Cooper may have perfectly nailed the part of an aging rock star, but it turns out that one of the biggest detractors of A Star is Born was Cooper’s own rock star friend, Eddie Vedder. Thankfully, Vedder’s warnings to Cooper fell on deaf ears, but the Pearl Jam frontman ended up influencing Cooper’s performance as Jackson Maine in a different way. When Cooper was first considering preparing to take on the role of both director and star of A Star is Born, one of the first people he wen...

The Power of Eddie Vedder’s Voice: Hear Isolated Vocal Tracks from Three Classic Pearl Jam Songs

A lifetime of rock star excess has taken its toll on Eddie Vedder’s voice but not on his talent. Most recent performances have tilted towards the gentle, the acoustic, the Americana, reflecting his larger embrace of the broad expanse of American music. And yes, he can still rock when needs be. But these isolated vocal tracks--”Alive” above and “Black” and “Porch” below--show how powerful Vedder’s pipes were back in the day at the height of grunge. Vedder used a lot of vibrato, more than ...

Don’t think too much of yourself. You’re an accident

This is of The Rationalist, my column for the Times of India. I was 17 when I first heard Chris Cornell sing, and I still remember the shock of that moment. The song was Hunger Strike, by a band called Temple of the Dog, and the other vocalist on that song was Eddie Vedder. Cornell and Vedder, with Soundgarden and Pearl Jam respectively, would go on to become the iconic vocalists of their age. Unlike their grunge peers, Kurt Cobain and Layne Staley, they didn’t die young, and actually built a...

In my teenage years, I plastered my bedroom walls with posters of hair bands like Poison, Whitesnake, and Guns N’ Roses, while secretly listening to Indigo Girls and Tracy Chapman when no one else was aroun...
