Default Any Pearl Jam sightings?

Hello

I'm a huge Pearl Jam fan and I often read on Pearl Jam forums Seattle residents talking about how they might see Eddie or another member of Pearl Jam doing everyday errands and stuff. Has anyone here spotted one of them around town at at a coffee shop, record store, etc?

And just as a side note, how great must it be to reside in a city where the greatest rock band in the world calls home. I'm totally envious!

No PJ sightings for me, but according to recent news reports, you might see the former bassist for Nirvana out campaigning if you live in a certain rural WA county.

Sure, Turin, Italy, 1993 -- they opened for U2.

In Seattle, however, no. Although WA is probably one of the few areas of the country where the 90's grunge bands still get a lot of radio play.

That's a shame. The stuff that passes for music these days on most radio station is just plain brutal. I'd love an all Seattle music radio station where I live.

Eddie Vedder has a house over by Lincoln Park in W Seattle. If he's seen out and about it's probably around there. I think he's a private kind of guy. Never heard of him out and about but maybe he just walks his dog around the park like everyone else.

Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden. Where have all the good times gone?

Don't forget the earlier successes out of Seattle...Heart, Queensryche come to mind.

"Jet City Woman", a song inspired by Seattle (and a girl) by Queensryche is still on my fav list.

Seattle has always been a great music town. From Ray Charles to the Ventures to the Fleetwoods (ok Olympia), and the grunge rock scene. It seems to need a bit of a kickstart these days. We'll see.

Actually Seattle is doing fine with music right now. The Fleet Foxes are one of the most lauded bands to come out this past year. They performed on Letterman and made plenty of top 10 lists for 2008. Also check out the Cave Singers, or if you like hip hop there's the Blue Scholars.

Not to further hijack the OP's original thread, but in addition to the acclaimed Fleet Foxes, notable Seattle bands include Death Cab for Cutie. And Modest Mouse is still out there and a favorite of many.

Anyone else see Letterman-regulars Pearl Jam on Conan O'Brien's first show last week?

Well, that is good to hear. I guess some of these bands have yet to reach "critical mass"
quite yet, as the bands of the 90's did. But that takes time. I think Seattle has been, and will continue to be a great music town.
