When I watched A Star Is Born the other day, I couldn’t help but think Bradley Cooper’s Jackson Maine character was channeling some serious Eddie Vedder vibes.
I wasn’t wrong to think that. Last September, Vanity Fair talked about Cooper shadowing the Pear Jam frontman for a few days to get his mannerisms down. “I went up to Seattle and spent four or five days with and I asked him 9,000 questions. And he gave me minor, little things that only musicians know about what to do, just aesthetically and the inner workings. . . . He was wonderful.”
Last night at the Innings Festival in Tempe, Arizona…. Vedder channeled Jackson Maine…channeling Eddie Vedder to cover the song “Maybe It’s Time.”
The song is written by Jason Isbell and he was jazzed to hear that Eddie Vedder covered HIS song!
