Temple of the Dog Live
TOTD made a single album in 1991 as a tribute to Andy Wood, and aside of a few surprise performances, the have never properly toured as they were busy and dedicated to their respective bands - Pearl Jam and Soundgarden... until now. John and I went to see them perform in San Francisco last weekend and it was a dream come true. Eddie Vedder didn't show up and our seats were pretty far from the stage, which took away some of the intimacy I was hoping to experience, yet we had an amazing time. TOTD played all the songs from the album, plus Seasons from the movie Singles soundtrack, Right Turn from Alice in Chains's SAP album, and a few Mother Love Bone covers. I cried, I sang the lyrics until my throat hurt, and I felt a sense of great satisfaction. Never have I believed that I would ever be able to see Temple in concert, not in a million years.
