The opening chords of Pearl Jam’s Yellow Ledbetter might be one of the most recognizable opening riffs in the last 15 years.
It’s been in my head since yesterday, when D surprised me with Pearl Jam tickets for their upcoming DC show! I’m. So. Freakin. Excited. And have you heard Eddie Vedder on the Into the Wild soundtrack? Gosh, this is going to rule.
Well. I’ve just gone and got myself worked up right before I’m supposed to go to sleep.
