Eddie Vedder reunites with the cameraman who helped his death-defying stage dive

“He hasn’t been angry at me this whole time, and I just feel so fuckin’ forgiven.”

Eddie Vedder has revealed how he reunited with the cameraman who aided one of his most famous stage dives.

As Pearl Jam played PinkPop Festival in 1992, Vedder climbed onto a camera crane that was filming their performance – before undertaking a death defying dive into the crowd.

And as Vedder returned to the festival with Pearl Jam last weekend, he explained how he finally received the chance to reunite with the camera man earlier this year.

“Someone sent me a postcard with the picture of me jumping from that little thing, and in the picture, there is the cameraman who looks at me like he wants to fuckin’ kill me, and I realize he has every right to do so. I’ve never seen him since, and I see this thing in the hallway of my house and it reminds me of that day, and I wonder what happened to that guy. Is he still pissed off?”, Vedder explained. MORE
