Obamas chill with Pearl Jam rocker Eddie Vedder

2015-01-04 08:44

Honolulu - US President Barack Obama is closing out his Hawaii vacation by hanging out with Pearl Jam rocker Eddie Vedder.

Obama took his daughters Sasha and Malia to visit Vedder and his family in Kailua, not far from where the Obamas are renting a vacation home. They spent less than half an hour with Vedder.

The White House describes Vedder as a friend of the Obamas. In 2012, the lead singer performed at a fundraiser for Obama’s re-election campaign in Florida.

The visit comes on the last day of Obama’s two-week vacation on Oahu. Earlier yesterday, Obama got in a few last hours at the beach before visiting the cemetery where his mother’s father is buried. Obama also visited his sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng.

The Obamas return to Washington today.
