Eddie Vedder’s ‘Without You’ Performance Impresses Letterman
Eddie Vedder appeared on ‘Late Show With David Letterman’ with his ukulele to perform the song ‘Without You.’ The talk-show host was quite impressed with the Pearl Jam singer’s voice after the performance.
When introducing Vedder, Letterman said, “I really like this next guy … One time he was nice enough to actually give me a guitar, and it occupies a position of honor in my home.”
Vedder sat on a stool alone to belt out ‘Without You’ while playing his ukulele, which had the name ‘Clarence’ printed on it in honor of late E Street Band saxophonist Clarence Clemons. Vedder also played a song in tribute to Clemons at a recent gig.
Letterman followed up the performance with more kind words for the singer. “If I had this voice, you could all kiss my ass,” the funnyman told the audience.
‘Without You’ appears on Vedder’s recently released solo album, ‘Ukulele Songs.’ The grunge rocker is currently in the midst of a solo tour that runs through a two-night stand July 15 and 16 in Seattle.
