If nothing is everything

Vedder Gone

I recently found this video of Eddie Vedder playing ‘Gone’, from 2006’s Pearl Jam (the avocado album), live in the studio; part of the AOL Music Sessions (whatever they were). Matt Cameron ably provides backing vocals on the outro.

It’s a lovely take on the song, and it deftly illustrates some of Vedder’s skills as a songwriter, both lyrically and musically. It’s a really nice song to play on the guitar too, with a couple of unusual chords in the bridge. On the studio version, Mike McCready complements the song with some understated fills.
