i liked vs. i liked ten..basically stopped listening to the band after vitalogy (though I liked corduroy, and spin the black circle-though everyone else i talked to hated it :-P)..
not sure if vedder ever saw himself as another kurt cobain, never really even thought of those two in equal lights or even really alike at all other than them both being "alternative" or "grunge", but i think i read something by a critic a long time ago equating vedder to a counterfeit jim morrison or something. i dunno, who cares..you're a ding dong
