Watch Eddie Vedder Cover The Velvet Underground's "After Hours" In L.A.

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.

  1. I saw there. Eddie prefaced the song with a story about how he befriended Lou Reed in NYC in the wake of the Roskilde incident. Lovely story, lovely cover.
