Hey, Thanks, Ed King!

Ask Lynyrd Skynyrd guitarist, Ed King, what the best cover he's ever heard is, and he'll tell you it's Pearl Jam.  At least that's what he told his fans as part of a recent thread on is official forum.

Q - What's the best cover you've ever seen/heard by another band?

A - Pearl Jam doing the Who song THE REAL ME last year (VH1's "Rock Honors" in 2008).  THAT was the best cover I've ever heard...it had it ALL.  That is the ultimate tribute to a band.  It's perfect.

That's mighty nice of ya'.  Maybe Pearl Jam will give us a cover of the Ballad of Curtis Loew this fall!
