    I want to hear it so bad!.. I have a feeling that is going to be at least as good as the original! :wink: Please PJ or EV? :prayer: Maybe it can make its first live appearance at Ohana?.. :smile:

    Wait, what?
    Near to death.
    Here to die.
    Scared alive.

    As much as I’d like for it to be a totally different take, I have a feeling it’s just slightly different, maybe some different lyrics or something minor.

    "Courtesy of PearlJam.com:

    Dear Listeners,

    I was recently sent a book that I thought some of you more hardcore folks might find interesting.

    It’s called The Old Leather Man written by Dan DeLuca. It is a detailed historical document all about this intense character who roamed the northeast on foot in the mid to late 1800s.

    About twelve years ago on a winters day hike my friend Tim R., his kids and I stumbled upon one of his old caves. That night I was inspired to write not one but two songs about the man (the second, not so creatively titled “Leatherman II” was never released…definitely the more somber of the two).

    While this book offers up his life and times in the most complete manner as possible, the mystery of Leather Man remains intact.

    It’s also interesting to note the parallels between the Leather Man and Chris McCandless who we got to know through Into the Wild.

    Just thought I’d pass it on…

    Ed"

    Dunno why OP brought it up now though, if there was a recent prompt or something.

    Thank you Ceska! I was just trying to find that picture in order to explain what I mean. The only reason I've created  this thread is that I'm obsessed with the original song. I've also named my radio show after him: Leatherman's Grunt. Finally, it's always a good time to listen to never-heard-before outtakes. Don't you think?

  • Never been a fan of Leatherman... 

    ... but I would love to hear a more somber Leatherman II.

    Ah gotcha. Ok. I thought it had surfaced and I was missing it.

    Would definitely love to hear it now that I know what's going on.
