Earlier this month, Eddie Vedder embarked on a tour – in support of his new solo album Earthlings – that saw him hit the road with an A-list band comprised of Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, Pearl Jam touring guitarist Josh Klinghoffer, Jane’s Addiction bassist Chris Chaney and guitarist Glen Hansard.

Also part of the band is Andrew Watt – a self-proclaimed “biggest Pearl Jam fan of all time” whose resume includes production duties on Ozzy Osbourne’s Ordinary Man and a host of other high-profile albums.
