October 1995


Eddie during the recording of Dead Man Walking with Tim Robbins, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Susan Saradon                    During this month [October], Eddie colaborated with 2 songs for the 'Dead Man Walking' Soundtrack. He re-recorded 'Long Road' (a song that appeared two months later on the Merkinball single) with Nusrat Fateh Ali-Khan, and 'The Face of Love'. He even made a song for the movie called 'Dead Man Walking', after talking with Tim Robbins (director). Tim already had a song with that title written by Bruce Springsteen and he has to use his because of a "seniority thing" so Eddie retitled the song 'Dead Man' (said Eddie two years later on the Dead Man Walking Benefit [Not in Our Name].

                    "Singing with Nusrat was pretty heavy There was definitely a spiritual element. I saw him warm up once, and I walked out of the room and just broke down. I mean, God, what amazing power and energy", Eddie Vedder.
