Thread: Pearl Jam

    Default Pearl Jam

    This is a grunge section, so it would be unhealthy to leave out Pearl Jam...

    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...

    Nice thread Free. Seeing them live on the 27th, 28th, and 30th in Philly. It will be my 6th time seeing them.

    Great band.

    pearl jam is pretty good. i'm kinda disappointed in their latter music. Ten and Lost Dogs were their best works.

    Yeah, I started out with Ten and Lost Dogs, then I moved onto Vs. and Vitalogy. I decided two days ago that I was gonna listen to their other albums. It was difficult at first but you just have to not expect anything similar to Ten. No Code is starting to grow on me.

    Great thread! I’d have to say Ten is my favorite PJ album. I’ve never seen them live and unfortunately won’t be around for those Philly venues.

    Aside from the obvious tracks already mentioned, I also adore their cover of Last Kiss.

    Never felt so complete as when we're alone on the sand at night

    Alright, we definitely needed a Pearl Jam thread. I've liked these guys for a long time. As Dreams said their cover of Last Kiss is a classic. Though I must say their new album was quite a disappointment to me, it seemed rather poppy, I just wasn't feeling it. Maybe I'll give it another try sometime...


    edit- that's what I get for trying to pay attention to War and write a post at the same time.

    Aw, you edited Cowboy? I like Bush though.

    I also like Pearl Jam, and this is another excellent thread by Freetime. Great photos! I own the albums Ten, Vs, Yield, and No Code. Pearl Jam was the first Seattle band I ever got into (before Soundgarden, if you can believe it).

    Thanks, It's actually difficult thinking of how you got into Pearl Jam before Soundgarden, haha... Ten is amazing all the way through. Vs. is also great with Go, Animal, Dissident, Rearviewmirror, Glorified G, Elderly Woman and Daughter. I just started to get into No Code and Yield. They don't compare to Ten but it's unfair to expect Pearl Jam to make another album as amazing as Ten.

    Only seen them once (cause they're only been to Scotland twice and i was too youn the first time, COME BACK!) ... it was my first ever gig, and 9 years on it's still the best gig ive ever been to.

    Ive got all their albums, although Binaural doesnt get much play these days.

    My order of preference :-

    Ten
    Vs
    Yeild
    No Code
    Vitalogy
    Pearl Jam (self titled)
    Riot Act
    Binaural

    I havent put Backspacer in that list.... but in time im sure it will be very high up it. Best work PJ have done since Yeild.







    Two pretty contrasting songs from the album.

    Its amazing how much Ed's voice has changed since Ten, still great though.

    the thing i like most about pearl jam is the lyrics. they always seem to have some deep meaning to them, or tell a story. oceans has probably the best lyrics i've ever heard.

    It's funny that you pick Oceans because that song's about surfing... I agree though, the lyrics are amazing and I always give that song my own meaning, wish is easy to do with most Pearl Jam songs... Sometimes it's better not to know the true meaning of a song...

    The music is what i mostly identify with, but i totally see where your coming from with that, Vedder's lyrics are just amazing.

    Lyrics to songs like Rearview Mirror, Alive, Betterman (even though i am a man) and Corduroy... among countless others... really speak to me, about asserting yourself in society and not, or trying not, to take crap from no one.
    A trip to the England without a trip to Scotland.... is just a trip to England.

    If anyone can listen to Last Kiss and not feel your eyes start to tear up, YOU HAVE NO HEART.
