Best Covers: Pearl Jam ‘Last Kiss’

They may have meant it as a goof, but Pearl Jam made a solid rock ballad out of J Frank Wilson And The Cavaliers’ early-60s teen weeper “Last Kiss.” After Eddie Vedder got the band on board, the group recorded it on the cheap and offered it to their fan club members as a Christmas gift. Still, it does boggle the mind that this remains the biggest chart hit of their career, and one of the best-known cover songs of all time.

Favourite Gig: Eddie Vedder

You know Eddie Vedder as the frontman of classic grunge band Pearl Jam, who were just back in Barcelona in 2018 after a ten-year absence from our stages. And now he’s back on his own at the Palau Sant Jordi with a set list that includes his own songs (though he hasn’t released a solo album since 2011’s ‘Ukelele Songs’), Pearl Jam songs, and covers of tunes by different artists.
