Pearl Jam MSG Townshend Tribute

Unlike many of the bands that emerged from the Seattle scene in the early 90's, Eddie Vedder and Pearl Jam have never been reluctant to admit they were fans of older bands.  From the stage at Madison Square Garden Thursday (5/20) the Pearl Jam front man paid tribute to the Ramones and Pete Townshend of the Who, dedicating I Believe In Miracles to the memory of Joey Ramone and leading the 19,000 attending the first of the his band's two New York City concerts in singing happy birthday to Pete Townshend, who turned 65 the day before, and doing Reign O'er Me, the Quadrophenia classic.
