Vedder Jams with Twins Pitcher, Jared Burton

Jared Burton

Eddie Vedder was in Kansas City this week visiting his friend,Twins broadcaster, Ron Coomer.  After watching the Twins drop 3 in a row to the Royals, Vedder soothed their wounds by playing an impromptu set with pitcher, Jared Burton, at the team's hotel.

After singing Better Man and Yellow Ledbetter with Burton on guitar, Vedder took the guitar and continued the set with Porch and the Beatles' cover, You've Got to Hide Your Love Away.

Burton had this to say about his now signed guitar:

That was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, to play with a guy that's a no-doubt rock-and-roll hall of famer.  That's pretty much the end of that guitar, and he was the last guy to play it.
