This is a grunge section, so it would be unhealthy to leave out Pearl Jam...
Formation of Pearl Jam
After the death of Mother Love Bone front man Andrew Wood, Jeff Ament and Stone Gossard who were both part of the band, decided to move on. They then recruited Mike McCready for guitar. The first three members realized that they needed a drummer and a vocalist, so they sent out a tape of some of their demos to the former drummer of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jack Irons. Jack Irons didn't not accept, but luckily for us he was friends with Eddie Vedder and handed the tape over to him. Eddie Vedder sent a tape back to the trio with his vocals. Vedder took a flight to Seattle and with the addition of Dave Krusen on drums, Pearl Jam was born...
Pearl Jam formed in 1990, with the original lineup that included Jeff Ament (Bass), Stone Gossard (Guitar), Mike McCready (Lead Guitar), Eddie Vedder (Lead Vocals) and Dave Krusen (Drums). They first named the band Mookie Blaylock but eventually changed it to Pearl Jam.
The current members of Pearl Jam are Eddie Vedder (Lead Vocals), Mike McCready (Lead Guitar), Stone Gossard (Guitar), Jeff Ament (Bass) and Matt Cameron (Drums).

Pearl Jam is a legendary rock band that has an easily recognizable sound. I would definitely say that Ten was my favorite Pearl Jam album and one of my favorite albums of all time. Even though I haven't completely listened to all of the songs on every album, (so why am I making this thread?) Pearl Jam always makes good thought-provoking albums that cover many different styles of music. Pearl Jam has always stood up for their fans and while they're famous, they aren't interested in fame. Pearl Jam is easily one of the greatest American rock bands ever...
