Steve Poltz vs. Eddie “Pretentious” Vedder
This blog has evolved into a venue for polemics and more “serious” issues, however, every now and then there needs to be a little fun. In early July my friends Christi & Matt (Matt’s a former bandmate) invited over Steve Poltz, formerly of The Rugburns, to their house for a “Living Room Party.”
Friends and former Romeo’s Disciples Matt, Layne, & Doug all attended, and not only that, Steve rocked. But I especially came to hear Steve’s anthem against rock pretention, “Me and Eddie Vedder.” The song has been one of my favorites to cover at open mikes. Thus, below, Steve dedicates a song to the man!
See Sean Beaudoin’s The Ten Bands I Will Be Forced to Listen to in Hell, and guess what band adds the exclamation point?
