Eddie Vedder Writes Cubs Tribute Song

Via Billboard:

Chicago radio stations and sports bars have begun spinning "All the Way," a Chicago Cubs-themed ditty written by Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder at the request of Cubs legend Ernie Banks.

The track, with lines like "Our heroes wear pinstripes / pinstripes in blue / give us a chance to feel like heroes too," was recorded last month during a Vedder solo show at Chicago's Auditorium Theatre.

The article then goes on to mention that the song will be available as a download on Pearl Jam's website in a few days, and that there also may be CDs and 45 singles sold as well.

Am I the only one who remembers that Vedder wore a White Sox cap--one that Jack McDowell had given him--during the taping of the unplugged that PJ did in '92?

But hey, go Cubbies!
