The mask of fame doesn't sit pretty on Eddie Vedder, the growling lead singer of No. 1 rock band Pearl Jam. An interview with Mr. Vedder usually devolves into a full-bodied whine about losing privacy, mistrusting friends, counting riches after a working-class youth. In the January Spin, Mr. Vedder once again works up a sweat about being an icon. Old friends are acting strangely: "It feels like I'm a child being eaten by dingoes." New friends are suspect: "I don't feel like people relate to me as a human being."

On Sunday night, before Pearl Jam played its fifth song, Eddie Vedder addressed the sold-out crowd. “Twenty-three years. Twenty-three years. We have been a band for 23 years and this is the first time we have had the opportunity to say these three words: 'Good evening, Baltimore,'” the 48-year-old singer said. He seemed both mystified and relieved. Why had it taken his band so long to play this city, especially given its proximity to Philadelphia, a spot the group never misses?

Vedder rocked with Who idol TownshendA recent performance by Pete Townshend and Eddie Vedder at Chicago's House of Blues was a total rush! It was exciting to witness rock heroes from two generations working side by side to make music -- and help kids.This invitation-only event benefited Maryville Academy, a charity that helps physically, sexually and emotionally abused children.Pete kicked things off with a ripping version of his Who classic "Won't Get Fooled Again." He jabbed at his guitar with a force that would make any grunge guitarist green with envy.

Stone Temple PilotsTiny Music . . . Songs from the Vatican Gift Shop (Atlantic 82871)When Stone Temple Pilots sailed onto the scene with "Core" four years ago, critics from Rolling Stone to "Beavis and Butt-head" complained that the group was nothing but a Pearl Jam rip-off, with no sound of its own. That's not a complaint anyone is likely to level against "Tiny Music . . . Songs from the Vatican Gift Shop," however. Even though the album was recorded with Pearl Jam producer Brendan O'Brien, its sound is anything but imitative.

Pearl JamLive on Two Legs (Epic 69752)There was a time when Pearl Jam was the biggest band in rock and roll.In 1994, Pearl Jam seemed unstoppable. Not only did its albums go straight to No. 1, but they set records in doing so ("Vitalogy" sold nearly a million copies in its first week of release). Moreover, the band was one of the hottest tickets on the concert circuit, selling out shows as soon as they were announced.That changed after Pearl Jam refused to play venues that used TicketMaster and effectively stopped touring for a couple of years.

Eddie Vedder pauses when asked if "Immortality," a song on the new Pearl Jam album about depression, was inspired by the suicide last April of Kurt Cobain.Mr. Vedder is the rock artist most closely compared to Cobain. Both have been hailed as key figures in a new generation of songwriters who reflect the alienation and anger among many young people today."Immortality," featured on the new "Vitalogy" album (the CD and cassette will be in stores Tuesday), includes lines that certainly sound as if they were inspired by Cobain's death.
