The president of the USA reportedly concluded his winter break by visiting Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder in Hawaii – but spent less than half an hour with the rock singer.
According to Associated Press, Obama took his daughters, Sasha and Malia, to visit with Vedder and his family in Kailua, on the Hawaiian island of Oʻahu. The Obamas spent a two-week holiday in a vacation home nearby.
The Obamas and Vedder’s family reportedly spent around 20 minutes together on Saturday (January 3).
In 2012, Vedder helped raise $1.7million at a fundraiser for Obama’s re-election campaign. The singer performed two Pearl Jam Songs, ‘Rise’ and ‘Without You’, plus covers of James Taylor’s ‘Millworker’ and Neil Young‘s ‘Rockin’ In The Free World’, at a $20,000 ticket event, and spoke to the crowd about how he was able to achieve his dream of being a musician.
In October last year, Pearl Jam premiered a new song called ‘Moline’ at a show in the Illinois city that inspired the track. The song followed a surprise performance of the band’s 1996 album ‘No Code’ from start to finish.
