I love this. Feel free to tell me my favourite band sucks. Damn, that's good...
Billboard has a great synopsis of the Pearl Jam Twenty soundtrack. The die-hards have probably already seen it. If you're one of those early birds, please don't give away the ending. I want to see this. "Release" (from Sept. 16, 2006 Verona, Italy)"Written shortly after Eddie Vedder's arrival in
You've seen the teaser. Now here's the trailer. And here's your primer.
Man, am I looking forward to Cameron Crowe's Twenty. Twenty is a documentary about Pearl Jam who mark their 20th anniversary this year. Here's the teaser trailer: And here's your Pearl Jam primer.
Yeah... that's the stuff. Crank it up. And now my bitter hands, chafe beneath the clouds, of what was everything.
The A.V. Club is showcasing a series they call Whatever Happened to Alternative Nation? and this guy in his mid-30s is absolutely loving it. Part 3 is called "1992: Pearl Jam, the perils of fame, and the trouble with avoiding it" and as a big Pearl Jam fan, I
If you're lucky, when you hear Pearl Jam perform "Daughter" live, they'll tag on "It's OK". That's what they did in New York back in 2000, and the bootleg of this performance has been an iPod staple for me ever since. It's also my current ring tone. Here's Pearl Jam's
Conan O'Brien's birthday was on Monday. He performed in Seattle. Eddie Vedder played him a little song.
I'm submitting a song for SLS23 consideration. I'm submitting "Just Breathe" by Pearl Jam. This isn't just the best song on Backspacer, it's the best Pearl Jam single since... since... well, since before SLS, that's for sure. There's a rule with SLS that the same artist can't be represented on
I get letters... Mike,Hey - We do work for PJ and are trying to spread around this official widget. We'd love if you could post it on the site. Let me know, thanks!
The new Cameron Crowe video for Pearl Jam's "The Fixer" has been released. Check it out below. I remember after the huge success of "Jeremy" Pearl Jam was done with videos. It was a pretty big deal when we got that cool Todd McFarlane video for "Do the Evolution" back
I was lucky enough to see Pearl Jam live in concert for the seventh time yesterday. I can already hear some of you snickering about how you've seen one band 32 times or another 45 times, but I've only seen one band more times than I've seen Pearl Jam. This
I'm submitting a song for SLS22 consideration. I'm submitting "The Fixer" by Pearl Jam. This catchy mofo from one of my favourite bands is a shoe-in for SLS, but I've got more pressing PJ issues to iron out. As documented on my Pearl Jam in Toronto page, I've caught a
I'm submitting a song for SLS21 consideration. I'm submitting "Brother" by Pearl Jam. I almost refused to submit "Brother" by Pearl Jam. A few weeks ago, while listening to 102.1 here in Toronto, the deejay teased us by saying they'd play new Pearl Jam after the break. I stuck
Alan Cross spoke with Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder and asked the question I've been curious about for years. We now finally know how Vedder came to record Indio's "Hard Sun" for the Into The Wild soundtrack. Alan Cross: How did you come across “Hard Sun” for the “Into the Wild”
I'm writing this Pearl Jam primer off the top of my head, because I was there and I remember. For me, Pearl Jam flew in under a cloud of Nirvana dust. My ear buds were freaking out over Nirvana's Nevermind when our local alt rock station, CFNY, started playing Pearl
Eddie Vedder feels about the Chicago Cubs the way I feel about the Toronto Maple Leafs. It's in his blood, and he holds out hope, despite never seeing a championship in his lifetime. Eddie wrote a great song for his team called "All the Way". I've embeded it below. As
The 65th annual Golden Globe Awards were awesome, weren't they? The biggest casualty of the writer's strike to date, the Golden Globes were awarded via some kind of a press conference thing. It somehow seems fitting that Eddie Vedder would win in a year when the pomp and circumstance is
Eddie Vedder has unveiled his first solo music video for "Guaranteed," taken from his Into the Wild soundtrack. My brother lent me this soundtrack on Christmas Day and I love it. As a long time Pearl Jam fan, I remember when they stopped making videos. The video for "Jeremy" was
Coach Carter made sure I had the MP3 of Eddie Vedder's solo song from the Into The Wild soundtrack. As I was listening to it for the first time, I realized it wasn't an Eddie original but a song I had heard many times on local radio stations. It was
AT&T's webcast of Lollapalooza is making the news this week because Eddie Vedder's anti-Bush rant was censored during Pearl Jam's performance of "Daughter". Pearl Jam, my favourite non-Canadian band, always tags on another song at the end of "Daughter". On this night, they tagged on Pink Floyd's "Another
For a very long time, Porch was my favourite Pearl Jam song. On April 11th, 1992, Sharon Stone hosted Saturday Night Live and Pearl Jam was the musical guest. First they played Alive, and then they played Porch. Here's that performance.
Eddie Vedder's been busy with his solo stuff. He's finishing some new music for the upcoming Sean Penn-directed film "Into the Wild" and an album of his songs is due in September. Vedder likes to work on Penn films. He's all over the "Dead Man Walking" soundtrack and he recorded
