During last night’s Pearl Jam show at the L.A. Memorial Sports Arena, Eddie Vedder took a break from the band’s usual setlist to pay tribute to Lou Reed. Vedder crooned the Velvet Underground’s “After Hours” with his usual huskiness to a loudly enthusiastic audience. He briefly introduced the song saying, “I just want to let him know we’re thinking about him … I can’t tell you how much I miss the guy.” And with a final imparting lesson, “Miss ‘em while they’re still here,” Vedder broke into the classic first line, “If you close the door …” Check out the video of Vedder’s cover below.
