Throwback: Happy 58th Birthday, Eddie Vedder!

December is a rather auspicious month in music history:

Pearl Jam‘s Eddie Vedder celebrates his 58th birthday today. When I was in junior high school and high school, Pearl Jam was one of my favorite bands, ever. Their first three albums are absolutely legendary — and I loved them immensely.

Happy birthday, Eddie! Thank you for music that got me through my teens. And may there be many, many more!
