Happy 50th Birthday Eddie Vedder!

Happy 50th Birthday Eddie Vedder!

It’s amazing to think that Eddie Vedder has been part of our lives through music for 23 years now. I’m sure none of us will ever forget the first time we heard that voice.

For me, it was 1991 and MTV started playing a little known song called “Alive” by a new band called “Pearl Jam“. Like most, I’m sure – the melody simply wouldn’t leave my head. Playing, over and over.

A good friend of mine managed to get hold of their album – Ten, and passed it on to me. I rushed home, put the CD in my little CD Walkman player and turned the volume up.

My life totally changed in that moment.

Hearing “Black” for the first time actually brought me to tears. Here, finally was a band, a singer that connected with me in ways I’d never known before. A little switch went off in my head on that day, it’s never switched back.

I feel fortunate to have discovered Pearl Jam and Eddie Vedder at such a young age, growing up on songs and lyrics that had a depth and meaning to them, at times pointing me in a different direction with my own writings that maybe I wouldn’t have taken.

I’ll be forever grateful for the music and the memories that I have because of Eddie and the band, even now — still giving me some of the greatest days and nights of my life. Hopefully there are many more to come.

So, thank you Eddie Vedder for the music and have the happiest of birthdays.

Kev (your clone) on behalf of Pearl Jammer.

“Never Dreamed You’d Return…”

Pearl Jam UK Return.

Pearl Jam UK – The World’s Greatest Pearl Jam Tribute.

As the immortal words from “Elderly Woman Behind The Counter In A Small Town” state – “My God it’s been so long, never dreamed you’d return…” and it certainly felt that at one point, maybe we wouldn’t.

External and internal issues and pressures meant we reached a point at the end of last year where we had simply fallen out of love with what we were doing. When you spend so much time listening, reading, learning, researching and practicing every minute detail of something you love and care about so much, there’s always a danger of becoming burned out at some point.

One of the things we’ve always taken pride in, is our total commitment to the cause, so carrying on felt like we’d not only be cheating ourselves, but YOU – the wonderful people who travel endless miles and spend your hard-earned money to give you the most accurate and authentic performance of Pearl Jam‘s music possible.

Spending the first half of the year avoiding anything and everything to do with Pearl Jam, we were slowly sucked back in due to the European Tour Pearl Jam were undertaking in support of their album “Lightning Bolt”. After not seeing each other for most of the year, we bumped into each other at the Pearl Jam Leeds Arena gig.

It’s safe to say we completely and totally fell back in love with the band in a big way after witnessing a show that is already being talked about as “historic”.

A few days after the show, we talked about getting back in a room together and a rehearsal was booked.  From that first rehearsal onwards, we’ve never sounded better. We played like we’d never been away, learning new songs and polishing the old – even now finding details in songs we thought we knew inside out.

There’s a renewed sense of purpose and a dedication to uphold our status as “The Worlds Greatest Pearl Jam Tribute” and we’re all genuinely excited for the future once more.

We have some big news to announce soon, so stick with us. We promise it’ll be worth it.

We’re back.

Pearl Jammer.

Pearl Jammer – The Worlds Greatest Pearl Jam Tribute!

Welcome back to the (new) official website of Pearl Jammer – The Worlds Greatest Pearl Jam Tribute.

It’s been a long time coming after taking most of the year off, but we’re back, re-focused, re-energised and ready to go!

We’re currently working hard at home and in rehearsals, listening to Pearl Jam’s amazing catalogue of music, studiously picking apart every nuance, watching every video so we can learn as many new songs as we can to add to our already incredible setlist.

The website is also undergoing an overhaul, with content being added all the time. Bear with us whilst we catch up with everything.

It’s exciting for us to be back playing this wonderful music and we’re looking forward to seeing you wonderful people once again at our shows.

It really is an honour and a privilege to perform these songs, so together let’s scream our lungs out until it fills the room…

See you soon.

Pearl Jammer

“Troubled souls unite” (The Diamond – Nottingham 29/09/13)

After the disappointment of last weeks show in Newcastle, we were itching to move on and play the kind of night we know we’re more than capable of.

The Diamond, situated just outside Nottingham seemed like the perfect way to exorcise the demons of disappointment.

The venue itself on arrival, seemed a bit nondescript — situated on the edge of a housing estate, we were slightly worried it was going to be a bit “phoenix nights” if truth be told. However, like an Aladdin’s cave, once inside we were lifted by the venues charm and obvious history. It was akin to a Rock Cafe vibe, with gig posters on the walls from years gone by.

Soundcheck went well, utilising the time to have another full run through of “Deep” (the pre-tour pain in the ass song…) which settled any nerves we may have had, along with “Corduroy”, “Daughter” and “Wash”.

We hit the stage at exactly 9.15pm, opening with the now-typical “Wash” into “Once” combo that Pearl Jam seemed to favour on this tour, before working our way through the rest of the set they played some 21 years ago.

“Garden” has become probably our favourite song to play at this point, along with a special mention for “Leash” — which tonight finally clicked 100%. I felt like we finally owned the song and played it without any thought or trepidation, with the performance reflecting this confidence we’ve grown into.

The second set kicked off with “Elderly Woman…” — back in tonight’s set, as it’d been a while since we played it last, also keeping with true Pearl Jam tradition of rotating songs as often as possible.

My throat was in quite a bad way tonight (something I felt in the days leading up to the show) and Worldwide Suicide is probably the hardest song in the Pearl Jam catalogue at the best of times, but it (oddly) seemed to help the performance.

The final trio of “Daughter”, “Do The Evolution” and “Rearviewmirror” (the setlist says “Betterman” but we changed our minds…) built the perfect crescendo to a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

For a Sunday night in deepest, darkest Nottinghamshire, I’d say it was about as good as it gets.

Next up is Birmingham. A gig we’ve got a really good feeling about…
