Pearl Jam Legend Reveals Wrong Eddie Vedder Credit


Dave Abbruzzese has revealed a mistake in Pearl Jam’s Vitalogy album credits in a new social media post:

These credits are wrong!

It is me playing bass and the tremelo guitar parts on Aye Davanita! Brendon is playing the awesome finger picking guitars. Eddie didn’t play or sing on the track. Stone did the vocals. I don’t think Jeff or Mike did any work on this one.
Trina wasnt involved. This was recorded at Southern Tracks in Atlanta. Trina was working with us in New Orleans.”

Dave also recently posted, “Why is it that everytime I post anything stating my feelings and opinions about Trump and or his allies, I get flooded with hateful and downright nasty messages from people that aren’t Facebook friends? It’s bizarre. It’s either hateful messages or people telling me that I ought to keep my political views to myself. Not once, ever have these people said anything constructive or made any effort to educate me. It’s just reactionary hatred. I find it fascinating and scary at the same time.”
