Thick Pick: PJ + Supersuckers = Rockin!

by Kathy Davis on May 6, 2009

Here’s a gem of a vid from the 2005 Canadian Tour. Let’s take the Wayback Machine to September 9, 2005 and land it in Thunder Bay, Ontario.  Here we are treated to a rousing version of “Rockin’ In The Free World” as performed byPearl Jam with The Supersuckers, featuring singer Eddie Spaghetti’s son Quattro helping out on heavy metal horns, tambourine and vocals. Shot side stage.

From the Concert ChronologyEddie Spaghetti brings out his young son, Quattro, sporting ear protective headphones, holding a black tambourine in his hand. Eddie Spaghetti just sings and watches his son, Dusty plays drums, and the others play guitar. Quattro completely steals the show during the song, singing “yeah! a lot. Mike is on his knees in front of Quattro trying to get him to play, but he just puts the mic up to Mike who says “play” into it. The Supersuckers leave the stage except for Quattro who stands at the front still saying “yeah!” and “Supersuckers!” with his hands up making the “devil” sign.

Enjoy!

Thanks Sandy S. for the spicy hot link!
