Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder was the inspiration for Bradley Cooper's character in the Oscar-nominated film A Star Is Born.

And it seems Eddie enjoyed the film.

Vedder covered Maybe It's Time from the soundtrack at a recent show in Arizona, and it was definitely an inspired choice.


The song's original writer, Jason Isbell, was understandably excited by the cover.


The film has been a huge success, and features Cooper and Lady Gaga in the lead roles.

The soundtrack has also received widespread acclaim, topping charts across the world.

Cooper revealed that Vedder gave him some help with preparing for the role, while speaking during a press junket last year.

“I went up to Seattle and spent four or five days with him and I asked him 9,000 questions,” Cooper explained. “And he gave me minor, little things that only musicians know about what to do, just aesthetically and the inner workings.”

The film has brought in more than $429 million at the box office to date, so clearly Vedder's advice worked!
