Joining Vedder and the band was also ’80s rocker Joe Jackson, best known for his hit “Is She Really Going Out with Him?”

“Sixteen-year-old Jason is so high-fiving 41-year-old Jason right now,” Riviera general manager Jason Rammelsberg (pictured, right) posted to his Facebook page, along with a clip of the surprise performance, which can be seen at

    Love ya guys, but “Got The Time” is actually a JOE JACKSON’s song that Anthrax covered. If Mr. Jackson was there… Likely the reason Mr. Vetter sang it.
