During the first night of Pearl Jam’s 20th anniversary music festival in Alpine Valley, WI, Temple of the Dog reunited, Chris Cornell aided in a cover of Mother Love Bone, The Strokes’ Julian Casablancas lent his vocals for “Not For You”, Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme guested on “In The Moonlight”, and Liam Finn, The Swell Season’s Glen Hansard, and Mudhoney’s Dan Peters joined the band for “Who You Are”. Night two better feature the resurrection of Kurt Cobain or I’m going to be disappointed.
Our complete recap of Pearl Jam 20 is forthcoming, but we culled together videos of the aforementioned highlights below. We’ll add in more clips as they appear.
