Best Live Covers From Eddie Vedder

Tom Petty, “I Won’t Back Down”

The Gorge Amphitheater, located a few hours drive from Seattle, holds a special place in Pearl Jam’s history, as the group have played the venue repeatedly over their career to sellout crowds of hometown super-fans. The band even released a seven-disc live album recorded there, called Live at the Gorge 05/06. During an ’05 gig, Vedder performed a solo acoustic rendition of Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down,” showing a new, stripped-down side to the rock classic.
