The Day Sir Paul McCartney Punched Eddie Vedder In The Face
The pair were chatting at a hotel bar in Eddie Vedder’s hometown of Seattle. Paul McCartney was telling a tale of each moment when his forceful jab turned out to be less of a demonstration and more so the real punch. Paul McCartney ended up re-enacting the punch, full force, on Eddie Vedder. Eddie had a busted lip and tasted blood. Kind of like the Beatle’s song, “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer,” came down on Eddie’s face. Eddie explains in his own words how he got punched:
Paul McCartney tells the stories of the Beatle’s cavern days and scuffs while playing in Germany with his pal John Lennon. I’m sure there was a scrum or two during the Fab Four days. I wonder if MMA cage fights would have rockers settle their beef with each other in the ring. Who wouldn’t pay to see a fight club of David Lee Roth going up against Gene Simmons, Roger Waters vs. David Gilmour, Lindsey Buckingham vs. Stevie Nicks, and Cory Taylor vs everyone? Till that time, we can just enjoy our favorite artists, “Belting,” out our favorite tunes.
