JOHNNY MARR & EDDIE VEDDER : "There is a Light That Never Goes Out" : OHANA FESTIVAL (Sept 29, 2018)
See the Pearl Jam frontman perform There Is A Light That Never Goes Out with the legendary guitarist.
The Pearl Jam frontman joined the iconic former Smiths guitarist onstage during his performance at the Ohana Music Festival in Dana Point, California.
Introducing Vedder on stage towards the end of his set, Marr told the crowd: "I’d just like to take this opportunity to thank a good friend of mine, someone who I’ve admired and who’s been good to me and who’s an inspiration, and I'd like to invite him up on stage to sing this next song."
The pair then launched into The Smiths much-loved 1986 The Queen Is Dead track, which Vedder transformed with his gruff vocals.
Watch a clip of the performance above.
Eddie Vedder is no stranger to an onstage appearance or two, recently taking to the stage with Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, comedy actor Will Ferrell, Pearl Jam guitarist Mike Cready and singer Brandi Carlile to perform Depeche Mode's Personal Jesus.
