Just in - Greg Allman dead at 69.  He stopped touring earlier this year due to health issues. One of the greats.

I got to see them twice last week.  Awesome as usual.  6 hours of music and 52 different songs over 2 nites.

Very special live band.

I agree about Vedder's singing, it's okay but Pearl Jam does get boring espicially with the amount played here on RP like just 4 hours ago

Average musicianship (at best). Songwriting that one might expect from a garage band and a singer whose dreariness is only exceeded by his complete inability to invent a melody.

Hopeless on all accountable levels.

Sorry but that is just your opinion. You cannot generalize it. The music was always be and always will be about personal taste and matching energy. Nobody can tell you "this is good" or "this is bad". If some song makes you happy than it's good ,and that's it. {#Wink} Just listen your heart ,not the critics,even if they comes from big musicians or other eloquent people.. (sorry for my english)

Heh.  After watching Mick Jagger sing "Under My Thumb" on Ed Sullivan's studio stage sometime in the mid '60s, my dad said the same thing.

There is a deep connection I've noticed at PJ shows between this band and their lyrics, with guys of a certain age.

I'm a little older and love this band massively but I agree there is a very spiritual connection going on here.

No...dude...I was kidding. Promise. Imagined scenario of Kamakawiwiole as overhyped singer/ukelele rock star...perhaps like Eddie Vedder. 

No disrespect to the man. I bought one of Iz'songs asoon as I heard it on RP.  May he rest in peace. 

Kim can take care of herself, God forbid.

I gave the song a 4, but the crowd sure seemed easily impressed. I imagined they'd yawn if they heard Peter Ostroushko on the mando. They made a lot of money though so they must be good.
Hey Acceptable is good enough. I'd rather have acceptable than barf in my shoes.

It was a ukele. THAT explains it.

I'm wondering how well Vedder's solo ukulele work is going to be remembered. 

I'm very sure the ukulele is fun and all, but Eddie Vedder is no Kamakawiwiole.

It did take a long time for Pearl Jam to really click for me.  I always liked them but I was a half generation older than the average fan and I let that bother me.  Now I think they are in, say, the top ten of the most influential groups of the rock era.

Pretty funny — my Dad's response to Pearl Jam was "This band is not going to be remembered 20 years from now.  Not like the old greats are remembered."  (I swear, this is a direct, paraphrased quote).  

Looks like he was wrong.

I won't defend all the "new" "darlings", but I bet Death Cab is remembered for a long time, too.
