Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder, who recently released his third solo album ‘Earthling’, paid tribute to the late Mark Lanegan at a show in Seattle this week.
“It’s hard to come to terms, at least at this point,” Vedder said about Lanegan. “He’s gonna be deeply missed, and at least we will always have his voice to listen to and his words and his books to read, he wrote two incredible books in the last few years.
“Just wanted to process it and put it out there, let his wife and loved ones know that people in his old stomping grounds have been thinking about him and we love him.”
