9/22/11: Pearl Jam

Listeners of this show know that the 90’s are still alive and well here in the Fuzz Factory.  The music of the 90’s are consistently part of the regular playlists.  And why not, hard rock combined with alternative music in the 90’s and changed rock and roll for the better.  From time to time I will feature a band from the 90’s or celebrate the 90’s in one way or another.

Pearl Jam is the special feature this week, a band from the 90’s that is still going strong.  Last week saw the release of Pearl Jam Twenty, their career spanning documentary, directed by Cameron Crowe.  I went with friends and saw it at the Midtown Arts Theater on it’s one day theatrical release.  Watch it on DVD.  It’s well worth it. Plus I hear there is a lot of extra footage on the DVD.  Pearl Jam has been around for 20 years. As someone who was there from day one – I must admit – it’s almost hard for me to believe. I will speak to this on the air from time to time and especially now since it is the 20th anniversary of so many landmark rock & roll happenings.

I touched on all aspects of their 20 years and played at least one song from every one of their studio releases.  I also received a lot of requests for this show and tried to honor them all.  Here is the playlist.
