Pearl Jam week keeps rolling on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” A number of big-name acts have taken the stage to pay tribute to Pearl Ham, including Chris Cornell and the Avett Brothers. Things took a new turn Wednesday (October 23) when country superstar Dierks Bentley took the stage with Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready to perform the band’s hit song, “Alive.”
Dierks and Mike were backed up by Fallon’s house band, The Roots. The makeshift rock band presented an fun take on the song. Of course, Bentley’s voice doesn’t sound like Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder’s, but he handles the vocals well enough.
Pearl Jam week on “Late Night” concludes with two nights of performances from the band themselves, as they celebrate the release of their latest album, “Lightning Bolt.”
