Dierks Bentley Sings Pearl Jam's "Alive" With Mike McCready And The Roots

Dierks Bentley Sings Pearl Jam's
Posted October 24th, 2013 @ 10:17am

Pearl Jam week continued on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Wednesday night.  On Thursday and Friday nights, the actual band will perform.  For the first three nights, various artists performed covers of Pearl Jam classics.

But, Wednesday was a little different.  Pearl Jam lead guitarist Mike McCeady joined country star Dierks Bentley and The Roots.

They did Alive.

If you're a Pearl Jam fan, you'll probably be cool with The Roots' performance of the song.  Captain Kirk Douglas did a fine job with Stone Gossard's iconic riff.  Bentley's vocal performance will probably make you say, "Meh."  Although, if you never knew the lyrics to the song, you're in luck.

This is not the first time McCready and Bentley performed together.  Watch Bentley, McCready, and others perform Pearl Jam's Just Breathe.
