Eddie Vedder Early Life
Eddie Vedder [Birth name;-Edward Louis Severson III] was born on 23 December 1964(Sun sign;-Capricorn) to Miss. Karen Lee Vedder and Mr. Edward Louis Severson in the ever-flourishing Chicago suburb of Evanston, Illinois.
His parents saw their annulment in the year 1965. Very soon his beloved mother remarried to a man named Peter Muller when Eddie was just a toddler. Eddie was raised with the belief that Peter Muller was his natal father.
Vedder’s beloved mother gifted him a guitar on his twelfth birthday, and since then the guitar never left him, and neither did he.
He once confessed,” when I was about 15-16 yrs old… I felt all alone… I was all alone-except for music.” He started his erudition at the San Dieguito High School. In the year 1994, Eddie espoused his coon’s age love Beth Liebling. The marriage, however, hit rock bottom. The couple decided to end it all in the year 2000.
In 2010, he married Jill McCormick and the couple today has two lovely daughters named as Olivia Vedder and Harper Vedder. Apart from music, Vedder is desirous about surfing and is also a die-hard fan of American professional basketball franchise Chicago Bears, Chicago Cubs and Chicago Bulls.
After deciding to drop-out of his high school due to miss-management in balancing the schooling and working, in the year 1980, he completed his secondary school General Equivalency Diploma and later in the year 1984, while trying his hands on numerous low-end works, Eddie finally decided to start his musical journey. He pushed his gears by making few trial-tapes for some local band groups.
Later in the year 1988, he was handed over the task of a caroler among the other crew members of the band “Bad Radio.” But this stint didn’t bring him laurels.

Eddie wrote down three new verses and taped them which later interestingly became Pearl Jam’s famous” Alive,” Once,” and” Footsteps.”
Due to his impressive work, he was later invited to work for “Temple of the Dog”(record sales-$1,000,000). Later he was enlisted in the Pearl Jam in 1990 as a drummer.
