Rockers Pearl Jam paid a moving tribute to late music icon Joe Strummer at Britain's Isle of Wight festival on Saturday night (23Jun12).
The grunge legends took to the stage to close the second night of festivities at the annual event off the south coast of England, and took time out of their two-hour set to remember The Clash frontman, who died in 2002.
Musing about how the British musician would have loved the festival, Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder told the crowd, "He would have loved this place. We were thinking about it on the way here, and sad to say, it'll be almost 10 years in December he's not been with us."
The band then went on to perform a rendition of Strummer's Arms Aloft track, as well as a cover of the Beatles' Rain, in honour of the wet weather which had blighted the festival on Thursday night (21Jun12).
