For one, it would be extremely difficult to make a musically worthy album that also explained the particulars of your recently concluded piece of complex concept art.

Eddie Vedder is really trying to take better care of himself. “I quit drinking and smoking all the time,” he says with a laugh. “I’m currently not drinking – because it’s 11:00 in the morning.” Sober or not, Vedder sounds pretty riled for a 48-year-old father of two on Pearl Jam‘s 10th album, Lightning Bolt, which ranges from Vitalogy-style punkiness to unabashed balladry. “We’ve got a situation in the band,” says Vedder, “where, hopefully, we can explore the possibilities of the whole spectrum.” … [Read more...] about Q&A: Eddie Vedder on Pearl Jam’s New LP and Hate-Watching the VMAs
