Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder just revealed that he had a ‘pretty serious’ case of COVID-19 earlier this year.

Vedder told the story on stage during Friday’s solo show in Los Angeles: “I got the COVID right before we were supposed to start practicing, probably five, six weeks ago, and literally saw my life flash in front of my eyes.”

The 57-year-old singer was grateful to be back on stage, calling it “a gift and an honor”.
