Eddie Vedder - Rotten Tomatoes

Eddie Vedder

Lowest Rated:   28% Slacker Uprising (2008)
Birthday:  
Birthplace:   Evanston, Illinois, USA
Lived with seven younger foster siblings while growing up in Illinois. Moved to San Diego in the mid-'70s. Changed name to Vedder, his mother's maiden name, after learning his father is actually his stepfather. Earned GED in early '80s and briefly attended community college outside Chicago. Sang in the band Indian Style, which included future Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave drummer Brad Wilk. Sang vocals on "Hunger Strike," a song on the eponymous (and only) album from Temple of the Dog, a band that featured Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament (formerly of Mother Love Bone), Soundgarden's Chris Cornell and Matt Cameron, and guitarist Mike McCready. Reteamed with Gossard, Ament and McCready to form Pearl Jam in 1990, Dave Kruson was brought in as the drummer.  Released first album, Ten, in August 1991; it eventually sold 12 million copies. After Kurt Cobain, was the most identifiable figure of the Seattle music scene of the 1990s, a distinction---along with the accompanying rock-star label---he stridently attempted to quash. Developed a dislike for the practices of Ticketmaster and began a lengthy feud with the company by refusing to play at venues where Ticketmaster promoted shows and sold tickets. Appeared on albums with The Who, Neil Young and The Ramones.
