See Eddie Vedder Join Gaslight Anthem Live for ‘Singles’ Jam
Vedder joined the Jersey punks live in Florida to perform the 20-year-old Pearl Jam song "State of Love and Trust"
“The first music that I ever discovered myself that made me want to smash my parents’ living room was Nirvana and Pearl Jam,” Gaslight Anthem frontman Brian Fallon told SPIN’s David Marchese recently, explaining how Pearl Jam influenced the New Jersey punks’ new album Handwritten. On Friday at DeLuna Fest in Pensacola Beach, Florida, Eddie Vedder joined Gaslight Anthem for a full-throttle performance of “State of Love and Trust,” from the just-turned-20 Singles soundtrack (check out our picks for an equivalent contemporary soundtrack here). Gaslight Anthem are in prestigious company: Vedder’s most recent live collaborators were Bruce Springsteen and, at least in a sense, President Obama.
