Bob Dylan Birthday Week Part 3

On 5/24/06, Bob Dylan's 65th birthday, at the start of Pearl Jam's first encore in Boston, Eddie Vedder sat alone with a guitar and a harmonica to play a heartfelt rendition of Forever Young. This was the first and only time that this song appears in a Pearl Jam setlist. The next track played that night was Dylan's Masters of War.

As a bonus, check out Pearl Jam performing All Along The Watchtower with Ronnie Wood at Shepherd's Bush Empire in London on 11/08/09 (shaky camera alert):

Awesome clip. As much of a douche eddie vedder can be, he can hit home runs like no one else. This forever young clip is one of them.

Exhibit B....his cat stevens cover of Trouble.

Exhibit C....his solo cover of Tom Petty's Wont back down.

Happy birthday bob. p.s. Levon Helm's birthday 70, was yesturday.
