Pearl Jam Close Outside Lands With Tribute to Neil Young from Spinner:
"Towards the end of the set, which included obligatory rockers such as 'Even Flow' and 'Daughter,' Vedder shared a personal memory with the crowd, saying that playing in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park reminded him of a situation 15 years ago when the band had to pull out of a San Fran show because Vedder had a severe case of food poisoning. Neil Young was brought in as the pinch hitter. 'I'd like to thank him for putting himself in harms way, in the service of rock 'n' roll,' said Vedder. As if in tribute (even though they often do this), the band closed their second encore with a pair of Young covers -- 'Throw Your Hatred Down' and 'Rockin' in the Free World.'"
