Alternate Versions: Pearl Jam (The Who)- Love Reign O’er Me (Live)

This alternate version is also a cover and one of the best covers I’ve ever heard. The studio version Pearl Jam did of The Who’s “Love Reign O’er Me” is really good but, this performance is what really does it in. After watching and listening to this version, it’s obvious that this song is now Pearl Jam’s. The performance is from the 2008 VH1 Rock Honors; The Who.

Classic Soundtracks: Outside Providence

In 1999, there was a film that came out called Outside Providence. The movie is based on writer and director Peter Farrelly’s (There’s Something About Mary, Kingpin, etc) novel of the same name. The film is a stoner style comedy full of the trials and tribulations of being a teenager. The movie stars Shawn Hatosy, Alec Baldwin, Amy Smart, the late Jonathan Brandis and a few others you might recognize.Something else that is pretty cool about this movie is that it features a very young Jesse Leach of Killswitch Engage in a small role.┬áThe movie is quite enjoyable and the soundtrack kicks major ass. The soundtrack features bands like The Who, The Allman Brothers, Mountain, Free, ELO, and so many other great bands from the 70’s.
