Vedderology (a collection of non-Pearl Jam Eddie Vedder songs)

After have been one of my high school stars in the grunge years, Pearl Jam have become my favourite live band. I saw them five times (Milan 1996, Verona 2006, Milan 2006, Turin 2006, Berlin 2009), Milan 2006 is still a strong candidate for the best concert of my life and I'm working to see them this year again (Werchter, maybe...). 

Today I will start a short series of playlist dedicated to them. The ouverture is for the singer, Eddie Vedder, and for his several extra-Pearl Jam collaborations. Beginning with the memorable Hunger Strike in Temple of the Dog album, going through movie soundtracks (Dead Man Walking, I'm Not There, the complete Into the Wild), live albums (Neil Finn and friends' 7 Worlds Collide), collaborations (Cat Power, Bad Religion, former PJ drummer Jack Irons). 

It's not a complete collection: some great stuff is missing, like You've Got To Hide Your Love Away from I Am Sam soundtrack or Ramones' cover I Believe in Miracles. In some tracks Vedder is the lead singer, in others he just provides backing vocals, others are duets. Enjoy!
