Pearl Jam seem to be having a bit of a renaisance at the mo., with their recently released Cameron Crowe directed movie (PJ20), they just seem to be everywhere and for this I am glad! For far too long it seemed that to say you were a PJ fan was like admitting you had a boil on your backside, or a hairy back - some things are best not said in public (I have neither, as the cream works fine thank you).
For many people, Pearl Jam will always be remembered when the Seattle Grunge scene broke and their anthemic sing-a-long songs like 'Alive' & 'Jeremy' - but for me their tenderer material hits me more. 'Around the bend' from 'No Code' album will always be my favourite. It was written by Eddie Vedder for Jack Irons (drummer) baby - and is about watching/holding his baby as it goes to sleep, and also how he's sorry that he can't do it everyday.
"...their synchronised jumping always needed more practice..."
Will Pearl Jam ever get back in the mainstream? Probably not, as they've spent the last decade trying NOT to be successful....just writing, recording and touring and making a few of us very happy in between!
Like more Tuesday Blues? Get some here!
....I've got the Tuesday Blues because Saturday is so far away!
