Eddie Vedder is finally engaged to his longtime girlfriend. The Pearl Jam singer-songwriter popped the question Friday night in Washington D.C. The couple were in D.C. to attend the Kennedy Center Honors Gala where Vedder performed paying tribute to honoree Bruce Springsteen. The two already have two children together (Vedder and his fiancee, not Springsteen).
Secondly, he’s performing for one of my personal favorite artists: Bruce Springsteen. A night with three of my favorite men: Eddie Vedder, Bruce Springsteen, and Barack Obama. Even Obama recognizes the influence Springsteen has had saying, “Only a handful of people have tapped the full power of music to tell the American story... One of those is Bruce Springsteen...I’m the president, but he’s the boss.” Springsteen may be honored this year, but I know Vedder’s time will come.
