The boy who earned a spot with Pearl Jam

Associated Press Associated Press 10/05/2016

A Maine boy's guitar skills earned him a spot onstage with Pearl Jam.

Ten-year-old Noah Keeley of Bar Harbor, Maine, was invited onstage to play last week in Quebec City. He sat on a stool and played along with the Pearl Jam song, Sad. Afterward, the band played a cover of Cheap Trick's Surrender and dedicated it to Noah's parents.

Lead singer Eddie Vedder had received an email from the boy's parents requesting the song and included clips of Noah playing Pearl Jam hits.

Vedder invited him onstage to play after seeing the boy in the audience May 5 at the Videotron Centre.

The boy's mother, Sarah Keeley, tells the Portland Press Herald that strangers were stopping her son on the street the next day asking for his autograph.
