There’s real power when there’s just one person up there. It’s terrifying, for the audience even. It’s a tight-wire act. There’s just something, an intimacy in it, and there’s a power in it” – Springsteen said to Vedder right before the beginning of his first solo tour in 2008.

In that moment I felt so vulnerable. Bruce told me one of the best thing to listen to at that point – Vedder reminded – “From then on I’ve never felt so fragile again”, he also confessed.
