Step aside, Taylor Swift, ’cause Eddie Vedder has the coolest squad this summer. The Pearl Jam frontman has been everywhere the last few months, performing alongside Sting, Peter Gabriel, Judd Apatow, former Chicago Bulls rebounder Dennis Rodman, and even a pair of karaoke winners. Over the weekend, during California’s inaugural Ohana Festival, Vedder continued to roll out the big-name collaborations, joining others onstage as well welcoming special guests to his own solo set.
Vedder made an appearance during Elvis Costello’s set to perform “What’s So Funny”; then joined X for “New World” and former PJ and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Jack Irons for a cover of Pink Floyd’s “Shine On You Crazy Diamond”. For his own solo performance, Vedder brought out professional surfer Kelly Slater during PJ’s “Indifference” as well took on Neil Young’s “Rockin’ In The Free World” with the help of members of Band of Horses.
