Jeff Ament of Pearl Jam has such a passion for skateboarding that he has built many skateparks in rural and under-privileged communities. In 2011 he even built a world-class skate park on the impoverished Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota.
This is one of my favorite concert films ever. It's not the best quality, but when I first got to see it, it was a bootleg as well. It's worth the wonky quality to just see all of this legendary talent kick it out on stage. For those of you not in the know, the band was basically known for having Layne Staley of Alice in Chains on vocals and Mike McCreedy of Pearl Jam on guitar. Not to be dismissed are the contributions of Screaming Trees drummer Barrett Martin and Bassist John Baker Saunders (and occasional backup vocals from Mark Lanegan of Screaming Trees). More after the jump.
Some of you have no freakin' idea how POWERFUL Pearl Jam was at their peak. They've mellowed and grown older gracefully, but in their day there was no better band on stage. This video shows a baby faced Eddie Vedder belting out the classic and later beating the holy hell out of the stage with his mic stand. This is pure energy and aggression. Check out this video and you'll see why, for a short period of time, Pearl Jam ruled the world.
What's not to love about Eddie Vedder? He's a rock star, philanthropist, and now a BAD TATTOO. From the IFC show "Portlandia" comes this tale of a tattoo that carries just a little too much emotional baggage for one lady.
With all the hoopla surrounding Pearl Jam's 20th anniversary it's no surprise there's some new music. Always being the best band for their fans that they can Pearl Jam has released a new single called "Ole."
