Social media calls “to protect” Eddie Vedder

Soundgarden‘s Chris Cornell was found dead in his hotel room after a performance in Detroit the same evening. It is not the first time that grunge rock fans had to deal with the death of an eminent presence in the genre.

Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots was found dead on his tour bus in December 2015 after dying from an overdose. Go back even further and Alice in Chains singer Layne Staley rather sadly suffered a similar fate in 2002. And of course, Nirvana‘s Kurt Cobain who committed suicide in April 1994.

Newsweek perhaps some up the sentiment on social media best with it’s headline; After Chris Cornell‘s death, Eddie Vedder is grunge’s last great frontman standing.

Unsurprisingly, social media (as well as other websites), have come to the same realisation. With a number of people on social media calling on Eddie Vedder to take care of himself or to just outright protect him!

Eddie Vedder was last seen performing with U2 and Mumford & Sons in Seattle for a performance of a song from Joshua Tree, titled… Mothers of the Disappeared.
