Eddie Vedder collaborated with another great comedy mind, Judd Apatow, in a chapter for his book Sick in the Head last year. During an interview for the book, Vedder discussed his struggles finding people to relate to as a teenager, and how The Who’s Quadrophenia was a ‘lifesaver’ for him. Apatow mentioned that he had heard Quadrophenia was a mind blower for Vedder.

“Yeah. And a lifesaver. A life ring to hang on to because, for some reason, I just didn’t feel like there was anybody I could relate to on the whole planet. Nobody at school and certainly no one in the household. And then, all of a sudden, it was like here’s some guy from London named Pete, and he knew everything that was going on.”

He added, “[I was] probably about thirteen, fourteen. And all kinds of stuff was happening in my life. It was really like, just, you know, it was like a bridge with the planks covering a big, deep chasm – and the planks were just falling. That whole period, I was just hanging on.”

Vedder elaborated on what Quadrophenia meant to him, “I mean, it was a number of things – I was finding messages in, like, Split Enz and Talking Heads. But as a whole, Quadrophenia was the one that…thank God the record store prescribed that drug, because that’s what got me through. Even though it didn’t offer any answers, in the end it was just knowing that you weren’t the only one going through these things.”
