Eddie Vedder has opened up about the debilitating back injury that has made his life as a rocker more difficult. Speaking with Rolling Stone, the Pearl Jam fronter said there were moments when he feared he'd never play guitar again:
"It was a major inconvenience that, when I look back, was really minor. But, you know, in the middle of it, I didn't know if I would play guitar again. I could picture sitting there with Mike or Stone, calling out chords. 'No, go to a B-minor! Go to a B-minor-7!'"
He said the injury actually informed some of the lyrical themes on the band's most recent album Lightning Bolt:
"They say to write what you know. I think that's maybe one thing that we all know - it's living while you're alive, and living to the day you die, and being cognizant of the end. You might lead a more appreciative life, if that's part of your approach."
