Eddie Vedder Marries Model Jill Mccormick In Hawaii
EDDIE VEDDER, the frontman of American rock band PEARL JAM, has married his girlfriend JILL MCCORMICK, who has appeared as a model in Vogue, Elle, Cosmopolitan and Harper's Bazaar. The couple, who have two children together, tied the knot during a ceremony in Hawaii on Saturday 18th September, reports US Magazine. The actor SEAN PENN, and musician JACK JOHNSON were among the 70 guests to attend the wedding.
45-year-old Vedder proposed to MCCormick on December 4th 2009 in Washington, and later that weekend his band performed at the Kennedy Center in a gig that honoured the work of BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN. The marriage is MCCormick's first, but Vedder has been married once before.
According to Billboard, Vedder and his band-mates are slated to informally celebrate Pearl Jam's 20th birthday at NEIL YOUNG's annual 'Bridge School Benefit' on October 23rd and 24th in California. The group formed in Seattle, Washington, in 1990, and broke into the mainstream after releasing their debut album, Ten. The band was a key part of the 1990's grunge movement.
