Rodman and Vedder, Together Again
Maybe you've heard stories about the time Dennis Rodman "sat in" with Pearl Jam during a Dallas show in 1998. Yeah -- it really happened on July 5 of that year at Reunion Arena, if I have my dates and arenas right. Two years before he signed on as a Dallas Maverick, Rodman joined the band for some 45 minutes, before Jeff Ament gave him the boot -- but not before a shirtless Rodman hoisted Eddie Vedder on his sweaty shoulders for some "Alive." See for yourself, thanks to a rather pro-looking vid somebody just posted to the YouTubes. --Robert Wilonsky
