Notes: In 1990, Eddie Vedder was working part-time as a night attendant at a local gas station in San Diego when he was given a demo tape containing the music of a band in Seattle, Washington who was looking for a singer.  He listened to the tape just before going surfing where he would get the inspiration for the lyrics of what would become, “Alive”, “Once”, and “Footsteps”.  Vedder was flown out to Seattle the next month where he joined Stone Gossard, Jeff Ament, Mike McCready and Dave Krusen.  Ten months later they released, ‘Ten’, their debut studio album and one of the greatest rock albums of all-time.  Pearl Jam was born and music listeners have been blessed ever since.
