Pearl Jam: a musical instrument auction to benefit Music Rising

Eddie Vedder talks about the Pearl Jam memorabilia auctioned for Music Rising.

The live and online auction offers a rare and significant collection of guitars and other music memorabilia from U2’s The Edge, producer Bob Ezrin and a host of their famous friends who are among some of the world’s most prominent musicians. The auction takes Music Rising back to its roots and will help restore the livelihood of musicians of New Orleans and surrounding regions who have suffered through the pandemic.

Paul McCartney, Bono, Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, Lenny Kravitz, Chris Martin, Alice Cooper, Slash, Alex Lifeson, Dave Grohl, Eddie Vedder and Pearl Jam, Steve Miller, Vince Gill, Ronnie Wood, Dave Matthews, and so many others have personally donated instruments to the cause.
