Bad Religion's Prayers Were Answered

Bad Religion have to push back their recording schedule, since they

are the opening act on Pearl Jam's American tour. Originally Bad

Religion planned to be in the studio in July, but as they say,

opportunity knocked, and Bad Religion answered. We asked Bad

Religion's label, why them? The label publicist answered rather

blandly that they were F. O. E. (friends of Eddie's). In fact Vedder

sang on their 1993 Recipe For Hate. Vedder apparently selected

them not only because he is a fan, but because he knew he could get

along with them, and for Vedder that's the more important of the two.

Bad Religion are currently winding up the last leg of their European

tour, and will be next seen on these shores on June 16, in Casper,

Wyoming with Pearl Jam.
