Eddie Vedder - Hard Sun

Born outside Chicago, Eddie Vedder grew up in San Diego. Vedder had a rough childhood with his parents divorcing when he was 1. He grew up thinking his step-father was his real father and did not find out until his mother divorced from his step-father. By then his real father has already died after suffering from multiple sclerosis.

After re-locating briefly back to Chicago, Vedder returned to San Diego and played in several local bands. By 1990, he was without a band, but he continued to write and record demos. After hearing Vedder's tape, former Mother Love Bone members Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament invited Vedder to come to Seattle to audition for their new band. The band, Temple of the Dog, released only one album. The members also formed another band Pearl Jam (originally calling itself Mookie Blaylock).

They recorded and released their debut album, Ten, which became one of the best selling alternative albums of the 1990s and the rest is history.

Hard Sun is a remake of the 1989 song by Indio and is one of the tracks on the first solo project by Vedder, the Into The Wild soundtrack.
