Jeremy Spoke – Pearl Jam – Note
“Jeremy” [ … ] takes its main inspiration from a newspaper article about a 15-year-old boy named Jeremy Wade Delle from Richardson, Texas who shot himself in front of his English classmates on the morning of January 8, 1991.
In a 2009 interview, [Eddie] Vedder said that he felt “the need to take that small article and make something of it—to give that action, to give it reaction, to give it more importance.”
