Eddie Vedder Is Still Doing Stuff

September 14th, 2007 // 12 Comments

I completely forgot that Eddie Vedder was around, after I got over my middle-school crush on him at the height of his Pearl Jam days. Nowadays, he looks more like somebody’s grizzly dad, than a crush-worthy grunge-god. Well, he’s still fairly cute, and I’m guessing that’s his daughter and she’s adorable. These days, Eddie’s been lending his musical talents, working on writing and recording solo tracks for the soundtracks of two upcoming films. Vedder was at the Toronto International Film Festival and is currently working on music for “Into the Wild” a film based on a true story, and a documentary, “Body of War.” When he chatted with EW, he mentioned that the Phil Donahue actually got him to watch the documentary and become involved in the project.

“Phil and I were part of Ralph Nader’s support group in 2000. And then I just bumped into him and he said, ‘I need you to watch this film.’ After that it was real easy.”

That is awesome that Phil Donahue is still out and about, getting people riled up over stuff. I wonder if Geraldo Rivera ever just reminisces about the good old days and politely asks someone to throw a chair at his face…

    Oh my god, the man is scrumptious – I STILL have a crush! Is the dark haired woman his lucky wife Jill?

    His daughter goes to school at the same school with my nephew and I see him all the time. He is still so good looking!

  3. I can’t thank you enough for some Eddie. It seems like NO ONE ever covers him or PJ anymore (hangs head in shame for lack of updates to own site) and I almost peed I was so excited to see some coverage and new candids of him. Thanks a million! xoxo

    I think he’s supposed to be a pretty decent guy. Does a lot for charity and the environment.

    He was a pioneer in the gravelly voice movement. Many copies of him but never another. He’s a great singer.

    This article was poorly titled and basically, uninformed. Eddie seems to have done quite a bit in the years you “forgot” about him, (understandably). Pearl Jam’s recent record was probably their best in over ten years so that’s quite an accomplishment worth paying attention to. While I appreciate the coverage, it just comes across as ignorant to say “Eddie Vedder is still doing stuff.” Maybe I just don’t visit this site often enough or those like it.
