John Mayer Talks Possible Eddie Vedder Collaboration


John Mayer wrote on Twitter yesterday that he would like to collaborate with Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder.

Mayer has written about his love of Pearl Jam and Vedder before, “Without this man Eddie Vedder and @pearljam I wouldn’t be a singer. Or a songwriter. I wouldn’t have tried to be as interesting with vocal melodies as he is. Without Mike McCready and ‘Yellow Ledbetter’ there is no ‘Slow Dancing in a Burning Room’ and without their record No Code there would be no Born and Raised. Saturday night at Bonnaroo gave me an opportunity to (clumsily) close the loop and pay my respects to the guys, their music and their navigating as a band through the years. Thanks for the kindness.”
