Published in celebration of Pearl Jam s twentieth anniversary and in conjunction with Cameron Crowe s definitive film, "Pearl Jam Twenty" is the unprecedented, and lavishly illustrated portrait of one of the world s most influential and successful bands. Published in celebration of Pearl Jam s twentieth anniversary and in conjunction with Cameron Crowe s definitive documentary film and soundtrack of the same name, "Pearl Jam Twenty" is an aesthetically stunning and definitive chronicle of their two decades as a band by the band itself. In 1991, Pearl Jam s debut album, "Ten" catapulted the little-known Seattle-based band into superstardom. Then, at the height of their popularity, the band shunned the spotlight, refusing to shoot videos or do interviews. Even as Pearl Jam s studio albums continued to be critically acclaimed and commercially successful, selling over sixty million albums worldwide, the inner workings of the band their day-to-day routines, influences, and motivations remained unknown even to their diehard fans. Twenty years later, this is their story. "Pearl Jam Twenty" is a treasure trove of behind-the-scenes anecdotes, rare archival memorabilia, and the band s personal photos, tour notes, and drawings. Told with wit and insight in the band members own words, and assembled by veteran music writer Jonathan Cohen with Mark Wilkerson and including a foreword by Cameron Crowe along with original interviews with legends and contemporaries like Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young, and Dave Grohl this intimate work provides an in-depth look at a group of musicians who through defying convention established themselves as the greatest American rock band ever ("USA TODAY "Readers Poll 2005)."show more

Review Text

"Essential . . . Pearl Jam's autobiographical account is one of few that focus on music rather than substance abuse. . . . Attests to their unwavering connection to their music and their ability to prevent fame from overshadowing art." - Library Journal (starred review)show more
