Pixies guitarist talks about opening for Pearl Jam in Imola and London next summer.
“We have not played with Pearl Jam before but we played at the festival curated by Eddie in San Diego. We got to meet him a bit, sat down, chatted. He knows our music and he seems to love music very much. He’s truly affable and it’s very easy to talk to. I’m feel pretty damn good to play with Pearl Jam next summer.” – Joey Santiago
