Broadcaster and music journalist Alan Cross writes and presents this introduction to Pearl Jam, one of the most successful bands to come of age in the '90s, as well as one of the most interesting modern bands from the perspective of its stance on the shifting power dynamics of the music industry over the past 20 years. Cross, a lively and engaged narrator whose performance of his own text is clear, well-paced, and enthusiastic, covers basic band background material - who, how, where, when, why - as well as contextualizing the group’s rise to fame and providing a rundown of how Pearl Jam has taken a stance against mass-market commercialization of music as an art form.
Who's Jeff Fairweather? Does he mean Bruce? And Andrew woke from his coma but sadly died days later after he mysteriously had a reversal of fortune...10 hours of nursing notes missing...his info is poor and wrong...better off looking into documentaries....this guy is a cash grab tool and uses basic resource info found in Wikipedia...sad
A great outline of Pearl Jam through the years and of Eddy Vedder. But by no means the full story. Loved every minute.
