Pearl Jam cover two Van Halen songs

Posted by on October 28, 2013


In Hartford on Friday, Pearl Jam revisted a song that they hadn’t played since the last time they played there three years ago. That song, which they played for the first time then, was a cover of Van Halen’s “Ain’t Talkin’ Bout Love.” This time, however, guitarist Mike McCready first busted out “Eruption,” the blistering solo on the first album that you’ve probably heard at countless Guitar Centers. While he doesn’t sound exactly like Eddie Van Halen, he still does an admirable job, and anyone thinking that the band isn’t that talented should be impressed by this. The band’s touring behind their 10th studio album, Lightning Bolt.
