Vedder proceeded to have a deep conversation with the fans about new life. Although it was not clear when he talked about his band going through the hardest thing, that he was talking about the death of Chris. After Cornell death, Eddie was the first one to come out and break it. Eddie referred to Cornell as ‘older brother.’
HERE’S A SONG TO NEW LIVES IN THE WORLD
Eddie told the audience to keep things between them and not break it out as it would be more special this way. Eddie talked about new lives and played a song for a 19-year-old named Lily whom he dedicated the song to. Vedder the proceded to sing Seasons. Chris committed suicide and there have only been a handful of times since Vedder has talked about the loss publically.
Losing a friend could be the biggest trauma one could have, love of other songwriters and fans reached out to Eddie. Seasons sound really well with the strings strung by Chris, and the cover was extravagantly good. The lyrics of the song made every person who has lost someone feels things.
