I was 13, maybe 14 when TEN came out. But look! Looky here! How young do these fuckers look???? Jaysus. If I could speak to them now I’d say “you saved my life”. I may also ask for them to refund the inadvisable tattoo I got when I was 17. Although, to be fair, I am getting more tattoos soon, so – my bad. Fuck, until watching this I’d almost forgotten how much I loved these guys and the Eddie Vedder. But in all seriousness, Ten gave me everything; it was astoundingly perfect. I’m very drunk so I will post the most perfect of all things: Eddie Vedder and The Rolling Stones (Christ almighty) singing together, later.
Or, in fact now. Yes, right now, Thank you for asking……..
But for now, let’s go back to the early 1990s. Because they were Ace. Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Mudhoney, Alice in Chains. Yup, that was my youth. God bless it and all who sailed it in i.e. me. Pleasant.
Also, I’m now old enough to fully appreciate Teh Vedder. Maaaan he looks young in this video. Enough to make me feel a bit like a pedo, despite the fact he’s roughly 10 years older than me. I still love him.. In fact my affection for Teh Vedder has probably outlasted all of my real relationships. Fuck.
Also: Eddie – Call Me.
