In a recent interview on the Undeniable With Joe Buck, the NBA Hall-of Famer Dennis Rodman shared some deep and tearful moments of a period of his life when he was going through depression.
During his interview, Joe Buck said to Rodman, “At one point you decided that you might not want to live anymore.”
The biggest moment happened in April 1993, when Rodman was found in his car parked outside Michigan’s the Palace of Auburn Hills with a gun on his lap.
He tells us that he used to listen to Pearl Jam a lot and ultimately, the band’s cd from that time saved his life.
This dark time in his life that was result of a many things like when his head coach Chuck Daly left theta and some family issues that made him want to pull that trigger.
It was lucky for him that when he was in his darkest hours, he met the band’s lead singer, Eddie Vedder one time at the Palace and he told Rodman to get their CD.
That’s exactly what Rodman did and he started to listen to their CD everyday and said that the song “Black” was on and something about the lyrics in that song helped deal with his depression, saved his life.
Now friends, Eddie does know that their music saved Rodman’s life.
