Oh, cool. So after listening to that one Weird Al song for nearly 3 decades, I finally know who Eddie Vedder is!
Fun fact: for a few years I thought the words were “He’s her very favorite soccer multimillionaire.”
I still remember the first time I heard Pearl Jam. I was in high school and a friend of mine was listening to “Ten” on their Walkman. He said to me “You gotta hear this” and put his headphones on me. Having grown up made to listen to oldies, 80s pop and more Yanni than any kid should ever be subjected to, hearing Pearl Jam for the first time was like someone showing me the sun when all I’d ever known was the moon.
I credit Pearl Jam and their political and social responsibilities for influencing in a major way who I am and how I run my life today. Their music saved me from a life of conservative and corporate drudgery, and on more than a few occasions comforted me in the darkness of life’s tribulations.
Thirty years on, I’m heavily involved in my community and in it for the greater good because of my interpretations of the messages I found in Pearl Jam’s music. To sum it up, the music taught me to be grateful and selfless. It’s been an incredible ride.

Yanni’s drummer, Charlie Adams was my producer.
Yeah, but I’m old enough that I don’t care what other people think of my music tastes.
