One of Vedder’s songs includes “Hard Sun” in the album “Into the Wild” and this was a cover of a song which was written by Gordon Peterson, better known as Indio. He wrote the song in 1987, and Vedder decided to cover it twenty years later. Recently, Peterson disclosed that he was irked by Vedder’s alteration of original key lyrics of the song “Hard Sun”.

Now, Gordon Peterson is suing Eddie Vedder as well as Universal Music group for the alleged “acts of infringement”. And he says that the changes in the key lyrics are “eroding the integrity of the composition.” The papers were filed in the New York Manhattan federal court. Eddie Vedder’s attorney stated to the New York Post that there is no basis for Peterson’s claims of infringement.
